Emirates Sponsored FA Cup
Tividale FC v Chasetown
Saturday 24th August 2019
Kick off at 3:00pm
In our second of our three home games this Bank Holiday week, we host Chasetown in the Emirates Sponsored FA Cup Preliminary Round.
We know that we will have to be better than we were in the last round when we just about got past an unlucky Wednesfield. Because this is a side that is not only playing at a level above us but have an amazing recent history in this competition. More of that in the match day programme if you didn’t already know it.
Tividale on the other hand have to be pleased with the start to their season and after the last two performances will be going into this game full of confidence.
We have a decent record against Chasetown going back to our Evo-Stik Northen Premier days. In our first season August 2014, we met on Bank Holiday Monday and it ended in a 0-0 stalemate. The reverse fixture saw us run out 2-0 winners with goals from Danny Ashton and Chris Field. Chasetown got some revenge in the semi final of that season’s Walsall Senior Cup,winning comfortable 3-0.
The following season, while it was a tough season for us one of the highlights was a battling 1-1 draw at The Beeches. Ryan Winter put the visitors ahead but Chris Sterling grabbed the equaliser from the spot. Despite another gutsy display from Tividale it was Chasetown who took the spoils with a 2-1 win at the Scholars ground. Henry Eze and Nicky Turton gave the home side a 2-0 lead but although Tividale pulled one back through Matt Jukes they were unable to find the equaliser.
