PREVIEW OF FA VASE GAME
City are in FA Vase action this Saturday, in the 2nd round qualifying, when we travel to Bradford to meet Thackley (k.o. 3.00). This will be the first-ever meeting between the two sides, and Thackley are currently 14th in the Premier division of the Northern Counties East League, with one win and three draws from five games played. Last week-end, they drew 2-2 at Yorkshire Amateur, who sit 3rd in the table, and the week before that, they beat Northern League side Thornaby in the previous round of the Vase.

The history of Thackley AFC goes back to 1930 when they were founded by members of the Wesleyan Methodist church, and they were one of the founder members of the NCEL in 1982, remaining in the Premier division ever since, and one of their former players is lanky striker Ian Ormondroyd, who enjoyed a long Football League career.

Any supporters wishing to travel with us should get in touch as soon as possible.

Before that, Garstang had recorded three straight wins following their promotion as champions of the West Lancs League.

PREVIEW OF TOMORROW'S GAME
City travel to Chadderton tomorrow for our third game of the new season, and looking to maintain a 100% record, one of just five remaining in the division.

Chadderton have enjoyed a mixed start so far with a 1-0 loss at home to Nelson followed by a good 5-3 win at relegated AFC Liverpool, including a hat-trick from Jack Turnbull.
