Sinclair looks towards The FA Cup

chrisClub News, First Team, General

FRANK SINCLAIR has urged his players to do themselves and the club proud in Saturday’s FA Cup clash at home to Corby Town (3pm).

A place in Sunday’s televised first round draw, £12,000 in prizemoney and the possibility of exposure on national television awaits the winners of this final qualifying round.

Sinclair  told Tim Channon: “The rewards for the club and the players are huge. I’ve told the lads to do it for the club and the fans, but most importantly for themselves because they may never have a better opportunity.

“Its very exciting for me as well. I’ve had a great history in the FA Cup (two Wembley finals with Chelsea) and to be involved again so early in my managerial career is fantastic and we’ll all be giving it 100 per cent to try and get through.”

Colwyn Bay will have new signing Sean Williams making his return to the club from Halifax after his international clearance came through on Thursday evening, but they will have to do without last weekend’s star debutant Marc Williams who is cup-tie after playing in an earlier round of the competition with Northwich Victoria.

The manager reports that everyone else is fit and available with Cameron Darkwah (hamstring) and Gareth Evans (ankle) coming through fitness tests on Thursday.
