30th November 2018 - FA Vase, FA Cup, Saltash United, Stockport County, Slough Town & Managerial Moves
It's a bumper show all round as Tim Fuell is joined by Dave Anderson and Swampy as the FA Vase hits Round Three and the FA Cup reaches the Second Round.
In the FA Vase Step 6 side Saltash United are setting the competition alight knocking out higher level opposition and manager Matt Cusack is hopeful of another this weekend when they entertain Cribbs from the Step 5 Western League.
With it being FA Cup weekend, we welcome the return of Phil Annets @FACupFactfile as we look at the 11 ties involving non league opposition.
One tie is an all non league one guaranteeing non league participation in the Third Round. Stockport County Manager Jim Gannon hopes it will be his side but they face a tough trip to Barnet on Sunday first. Not that that is overly-frightening to him, having seen his side knock out League side Yeovil Town last week and all at a time when he believes the club is getting things right on and off the field.
Also returning to the show is joint manager at Slough Town Neil Baker as his side feature in the FA Cup Second Round for the second successive season. League opposition in the form of Gillingham visit Arbour Park on Sunday and the expectations are high for the non leaguers.
Alex Narey editor of The Non League Paper is back and on the back of another busy managerial merry go round, suggests the football authorities may now need to look at the way club boards deal with managers and in particularly when they are ready to discard them.
