F.A. Cup and F.A. Vase Draws

 

The draws for the early rounds of the F.A. Cup and F.A. Vase have been released.

 

In the Emirates F.A. Cup Extra Preliminary Round, the Romans have been handed a tough away tie against newly-promoted Midland League Premier Division rivals Bromsgrove Sporting.

 

Sporting have a large following, and they topped Division One last season with an impressive unbeaten record as well as reaching the Semi-Finals of the F.A. Vase.

 

The tie will take place on Saturday 5th August, and the winners will be at home to either Coleshill Town or Wellington in the Preliminary Round.

 

We will be on our travels again in the Buildbase F.A. Vase 1st Qualifying Round, again against Midland Football League opposition but this time in the shape of Division One side Nuneaton Griff, with the winners travelling to either Heather St. John's or Coventry Sphinx at the 2nd Qualifying stage.

 

Griff's Pingles Stadium is unavailable on the scheduled date of Saturday 15th September due to an athletics meeting so the likelihood is that the game will have to take place on the Friday evening or Sunday afternoon of that weekend.
