Trip to Manchester for Villagers in the FA Vase

Monday 28th of September 2020

After their tremendous win over Northwich Victoria last Saturday North Ferriby will travel toWythenshawe Town in the First Round proper of this seasons FA Vase. A Danny East penalty saw the Villagers win through after coming back from 2-1 down early in the second half to win 3-2. 

Thankfully Ferriby won’t have to face one of Wytheshawe’s most famous son’s in Manchester United and England striker Marcus Rashford who hails from the area. Manager Chris Bolder is happy to have drawn a side at the same level as Ferriby albeit in the North West and a potentially winnable fixture.

“It is good we have been given a tie against a side the same level of us which means it gives us a great opportunity to progress in this competition,” said Bolder.

“I know it is away from home the way we played against Northwich showed the real character we have in the squad. We will certainly do some digging on our opponents to make sure we have all the details on how they play in what I am sure will be another tremendous cup tie.”

Wythenshawe play in the North West Counties West Division One South asnd have played one league game so far this season. They won 1-0 at New Mills in their only league game of the season so far but will have more games under their belt prior to the cup game.
