FOOTBALL - Redditch and Alvechurch learn FA Cup opponents

Redditch Editorial 7th Sep, 2022   0

REDDITCH United and Alvechurch have discovered their opponents in the next round of the FA Cup.

The Reds have been drawn at home to Peterborough Sports whilst Alvechurch will host Harborough Town in Second Round Qualifying.

Matt Clarke’s Reds side thrashed divisional rivals Rushall Olympic 4-1 at Dales Lane last weekend to reach the next round of the competition.

And Ian Long’s Church side produced a stunning comeback to beat Mickleover 3-2 at the Don Amott Arena despite trailing by two goals at half time.

Peterborough play in the National League North having been promoted from the Southern League Premier Central last season.

And despite Sports achieving promotion last term, Redditch claimed an impressive 1-0 win in Peterborough last season although they did lose the home fixture by the same scoreline.

Harborough play in the Northern Premier League Midlands division and were crowned United Counties League Premier Division South champions last term.

Redditch’s clash with Peterborough will take place on Saturday, September 17 with kick-off at 3pm at the Trico Stadium.

Alvechurch’s cup tie with Harborough takes place on the same day at the same time at Lye Meadow.
