West handed away tie in FA Vase Fifth Round – West Didsbury & Chorlton AFC

West handed away tie in FA Vase Fifth Round

We will travel to either Biggleswade United or Coventry Sphinx in the Fifth Round of the FA Vase.

Our destination will depend on the outcome of the Fourth Round tie between the Spartan South Midlands League’s Biggleswade and Sphinx of the United Counties League Premier Division South, which was postponed last weekend and will take place on Saturday 21st January.

Saturday’s win against Horden Community Welfare extended our record Vase run, as we take our place among the competition’s last 16 teams.

Elsewhere in the draw, the NWCFL is guaranteed at least three teams in the Fifth Round, with all four potential sides kept apart.

Fifth Round ties will be played on the weekend of Saturday 11th February, meaning our league game at Prestwich Heys will be rescheduled.
