West to welcome Stockport Town in the next round of the FA Vase, 23 September
Following yesterday’s victory over AFC Blackpool – a game much tougher than the 6-1 scoreline may suggest – West will welcome Stockport Town to Brookburn Road on Saturday 23rd September in the next round of the FA Vase.
Playing in NWCFL Division One – a league below West – Stockport Town themselves had a historic result in the opening round, running out 4-3 winners at home to Northwich Victoria.
West travelled to Stockport Town in pre-season, when goals from Lilley, McDonagh and Stott were enough to secure a 3-1 victory.

Northwich Guardian reported on Stockport Town’s memorable victory:
Stockport Town progressed to the second qualifying round, where they will visit […] West Didsbury & Chorlton later this month, as a reward for a 4-3 win at Townfield.
Five ex-Vics men, including popular midfielder Matty Clarke, were on the field from the first minute for a side that plays a level below Paul Moore’s men.
