West v Nelson – Now 10th October

West’s Lancashire Trophy tie against Nelson will now take place on Tuesday 10th October, 7:45pm KO, at Brookburn Road.

The Lancashire FA had originally ordered the tie to take place on Thursday evening but with West hosting a charity match and Nelson hosting an FA Youth Cup tie neither side was able to host the fixture.

The winners will be rewarded with a home tie to Lancaster City in the quarter finals.

Club Secretary Rob McKay said; “It’s always interesting trying to stage Lancashire Trophy ties; last season we managed to get the Padiham game on at the third attempt. That finished 5-3 so hopefully the Nelson tie will be worth the wait. I’d just like to pass on my thanks to Nelson FC for their patience and flexibility and we look forward to be being able to host them properly this time.”
