fa_cupCOLWYN BAY have been given an away trip to Workington in today’s draw for the first qualifying round of the Emirates FA Cup.
The tie is to be played on Saturday September 12th.
Its a long trip to Cumbria, but Borough Park has been quite a lucky ground for the Seagulls in the past.
They have won on their last two visits, 3-0 in 2013/14 and 2-1 in 2012/13 with Rob Hopley scoring in both games.
Unlucky Bay have now been drawn away in all three cups this season – League Cup (at Hyde), FA Trophy (Burscough or Bamber Bridge) and now the FA Cup.
Meanwhile manager Ash Hoskin hopes to have a full strength squad available for Tuesday’s away trip to unbeaten Salford City in the Evostik Premier League, although he will again make a late decision on John Dillon who has been having treatment at Crewe for his knee injury.
Salford, owned by former Manchester players Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and the Neville brothers, have won two and drawn the other of their three games so far and are among the favourites for promotion this season.
Their main danger man is experienced striker Danny Webber whose previous clubs include Manchester United, Sheffield United, Leeds and Watford.
The Seagulls boss admitted everyone was disappointed after last weekend’s defeat and knows the team has to be better in the final third, but said: “I’ve told the lads to get their heads up because Salford is a great place to go and play; you never know who could be watching.”
