Away in the Cup, at home in the Trophy


Mossley have a mixed bag as far as the FA Cup and Trophy draws are concerned.

In the Preliminary Round of the FA Cup sponsored by Eon the Lilywhites have been drawn away to Cammell Laird. Lairds were demoted to the UniBond Division One South at the end of last season over ground grading issues but are always a strong side particularly on home turf. The game will take place on Saturday 29th August. If Mossley win through they will then face a home tie against Colwyn Bay or the winners of the extra Preliminary Round tie between Parkgate and St Helens Town in the 1st Qualifying Round.

In the Carlsberg FA Trophy the Lilywhites have home advantage in the Preliminary Round on Saturday 3rd October with Zamaretto Southern League Midlands Division side Bedworth United the visitors to Seel Park. Should Mossley win through they will face the long journey to Spalding United in the 1st Qualifying Round on 17th October.

The UniBond League fixtures are expected to be released on 15th July.
