Game day FA Trophy home to Pickering Town

The Bulls continue their Buildbase FA Trophy campaign today as we take on Pickering Town at the Forest Town Arena. The bulls won the league fixture on the opening day of the season by 2 goals to 1. Both sides were missing players that day but the bulls looked comfortable in getting the three points.

This is both teams first venture into the FA Trophy and there is the possibility that the winners of the game today will be the lowest ranked team in the draw for the next round on Monday.  The winners of today’s game also receive £4,000 so all is to play for.

The bulls will be awaiting a fitness test on Jason White but all looks good. Apart from that Rudy has a full squad to choose from.

The bulls have had a good run against Pickering winning the last 3 matches against them. Hopefully the run continues as conference north and south teams enter in the next round and would be another opportunity to play a step 2 side.

Remember before today’s game we have a rememberance day memorial so please arrive early to support this.
