FA Cup Draw And Travel
October 23, 2005
Yesterday evening’s FA cup draw saw Rovers fans hoping for a good draw in the clubhouse bar after the win against Wrexham. It was all eyes on the TV screens and near silence as the draw was made. Rovers, ball number 9, stayed in the bag for quite some time, adding to the tension. Predictions from those watching ranged from Histon to Blackpool but when our ball was finally drawn, it was a disappointing away trip to Grimsby for us. Local rivals City drew League 2 team Notts County at home, whilst Yeovil drew an away trip to Macclesfield.
Matches will be played on the weekend 5th November and Supporters Club travel arrangements will be announced shortly on this site.
