Halesowen Town Football Club, Get ready to travel down to York Road the home of National League side Maidenhead United for the FA Trophy replay, after it was called off due to the heavy rain last Tuesday.
Last game The Yeltz were in action in the BetVictor Southern League Division one Central where we were at home against Daventry Town, in a game of two halves, first half started slow but The Yeltz managed to go into the break 1-0 to the good. The boys came out second half on fire and finished the match 5-0, five goals, four different scorers and a clean sheet.
Getting this far in the competition The Yeltz have knocked out Dereham Town, Evesham, Stamford, Grantham as well as two National League North sides in Gateshead and Bradford, every time we have had to go for a replay in this year’s FA Trophy the Halesowen boys have come away with the win. Maidenhead have only played one other round so far which was at home against Hemel Hempstead finishing in a 4-2 win.
The last time The Yeltz visited York Road was back in March 2007 when both clubs were in the Southern League Premier, where Maidenhead took all three points and completed a league double over Halesowen Town in a tight match that ended in 1-0 with the only goal coming from the penalty spot. Can this Yeltz team take advantage of any chances and make sure we come away with the win going into the third round of the Trophy for the first time. Winners of this fixture will play in the Third Round of the FA Trophy away from home against National League side FC Halifax, This still new Yeltz side have come so far this season sitting third in the league with games in hand and the only team from the league still in the Trophy.
Be good if we took a good Yeltz following down to their place, make noise from the first whistle to the last, and help the boys push on.
