Opening Fixtures & FA Vase Draw Announced

Time to break out the diaries.

The draw for the early rounds of the FA Cup and FA Vase were announced over the weekend alongside the Hallmark Security League publishing the first round of league fixtures for August.

So let's take a closer look....

Unfortunately we are not in the FA Cup this season but are, of course, in the FA Vase.

We will travel to Northern Counties East League outfit Rossington Main in the First Qualifying Round of the competition on Saturday 9th September.

The winners of that tie will host either Hallam or Abbey Hey in the Second Qualifying Round two weeks later.

As far as the league campaign is concerned we have had our August mapped out for us.

We will kick off our 2017-18 season away to Atherton LR which is then followed by our first home match of the season when Alsager Town visit Park Road on Wednesday 16th August.

As things stand the Saturday 19th August is free...but that may change depending on who is eliminated from the FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round.

We then face one of our longer trips of the season as we travel to Oswestry Town on Saturday 26th August before another midweek home match versus Prestwich Heys on Wednesday 30th August.

The rest of the league fixtures should be published towards the end of this month so watch this space for more details.
