BetVictor Southern League Division One South side Thatcham Town face their first FA Trophy Second Qualifying Round tie since 2011/12 when they visit Enfield Town.
We’d say the Kingfishers have their work cut out for them as a step 4 side facing and Isthmian League step 3 side, but Danny Robinson’s side made such short work of Swindon Supermarine in the previous round that it’s surely the home side who will be wary of the blues threat.
Speaking to Football in Berkshire, manager Danny Robinson gave an update on the team news ahead of the tie. He said: “The only news is Callum Willmoth is suspended and Archie Matthews, goalkeeper on loan from Swindon Town, is still in goal for Paul Strudley. Other than that we are full strength.”
