Our Northern League based opponents currently sit 15th in their table after winning 4, drawing 1 and losing 5 of their opening fixtures.
Dave McNabb, who is no stranger to FA Vase success after winning it at Wembley with Warrington Rylands back in 2021, won’t be taking the trip lightly as he knows how tough these trips to the North East can be.
In his post match interview following this weekends fantastic win on the road at Kendal, Dave said the following about the upcoming tie.
You can see the full interview on YouTube here.
Speaking of the weekends match against Kendal, an Andy Scarisbrick brace and yet another Harry Wright clean sheet, sealed the win as we controlled the game for the majority of the ninety as we start to look like a real force to be reckoned with.
Kendal heaped praise on our fans and club for our excellent behaviour in what turned out to be a great day all round.
