On Saturday we travel to Stafford Rangers for an FA Cup First Preliminary Round tie.  Rangers are flying high in fourth position in the Evo-Stik League Division One South with a long successful pedigree, and manager Ian Long is under no illusions about the difficulty of the task.

He told us “Obviously Stafford will be big favourites going into the game, but we are used to that. Since coming into the Northern Premier League we are underdogs in almost every game we play. The lads keep responding and hitting new highs though. We won’t be going to Stafford to just roll over, we’re going to try to get a result.”

Admission at Astonfields Road will be £9 adults, £6 concessions and £4 for under 16s.
