TOWN TO HOST SOLIHULL MOORS IN EMIRATES FA CUP

17 October 2016

The Glovers have been drawn at home to Solihull Moors in the First Round of the Emirates FA Cup.

With all ties to be played over the weekend of November 5th, Yeovil will line up against the National League outfit who’ve qualified for the First Round of the competition for the first time in their history. 

Speaking after the draw, Darren Way was pleased to begin Town’s cup campaign at Huish Park. 

“It’s good to have a home tie in the FA Cup which is a competition we consider very special as a Football Club; we look forward to getting going.”

The Moors enjoyed promotion from National League North last season and currently sit mid-table in the National League.

Despite sitting a step higher in the English footballing pyramid, Way is cautious of the challenge ahead. 

“Some of my most difficult matches as a player for Yeovil came in the FA Cup so it’s a challenge the players will look forward to. 

“We’ve enjoyed some fantastic FA Cup experiences throughout our history, so we’re eager to begin our campaign in the competition this season.”

Ticket prices and details will follow in due course.
