West to face 1874 Northwich in FA Cup Preliminary Round
With their first leg going to a replay, last night (Monday 8th August) saw West’s two potential FA Cup Preliminary Round opponents play out a replay. Having scored a late equaliser in the original fixture, Northwich Victoria were unable to take advantage of another bite at the cherry, with 1874 Northwich running out 2-0 winners.
That result means that West will travel to 1874 Northwich (The Barton Stadium, Winsford, CW7 3AE) for the next round of the FA Cup. This game is set to take place on Saturday 19th August – though this is subject to confirmation. More details will be announced as and when they become available.
West faced 1874 twice last season, losing 4-1 due to three goals in the last 10 minutes away (with Tom Bailey scoring the final goal), and falling to a 92nd minute goal 1-0 at home. Steve Settle will be hoping for a reversal of fortunes this time out.
