Rovers hope run continues
Story courtesy of Burton Mail
Gresley Rovers hope to maintain a remarkable record when the magic of the FA Cup comes to the Moat Ground tomorrow (3pm).
Rovers take on high-flying Witton Albion in the first qualifying round hoping to extend their sequence of victories over sides from the HFS Loans League.

In the last 2 years, Rovers have seen off Matlock Town, Buxton (twice) and Gainsborough Trinity in cup competitions and are confident their run of success can continue.

Manager Frank Northwood said: We didnt play very well last week, but Im expecting the players to raise their games and they have done in the past. If the crowd get behind us, weve always got a chance in cup football.

They also hope to attract their biggest crowd of the season as they chase a home tie to Warrington Town or North Ferriby United.
