FA TROPHY | Blues are off to Royston Town this weekend!

After last night’s narrow Senior Cup win against Stockport Town, attentions now move to the Buildbase FA Trophy Second Round.

The Blues face a tricky trip to Royston Town. The Crows play in the Bet Victory Southern Premier Central Division – and moved up to third last night in their table with a 2-1 victory at home to Redditch United.

In the last round, Saturday’s opponents advanced with a very impressive 2-0 win over National League side Boreham Wood whilst Chester beat Royston’s division rivals Hednesford Town in a replay after an initial 0-0 away draw at Keys Park. Brad Jackson and Akwasi Asante were on the scoresheet in the victory.

Ticket prices for the game are £10 for adults, £6 for over-65’s and £2 for under-16’s. Admission is pay on the gate and there is no segregation in place.

£5,250 is on offer for the winners of this tie, as well as a place in the last 16 of the competition. Kick off is 3pm at Garden Walk! (SG8 7HP)

Should the game be drawn after 90 minutes, a replay will take place at the 1885 Arena this Tuesday (14th Jan) with kick off at 7.45pm.
