Today we saw the draw of the third round proper of the FA Vase competition, following our 6-1 win away to Abingdon. We've been pulled out of the hat home to the Western League Premier Division side Plymouth Parkway with the match scheduled to be played on the 30th of November.
The league standards are very similarly matched across the divisions, however Plymouth currently sit in 2nd place in their division with 8 wins in 10 matches with only one defeat. Plymouth are currently the highest goal scorers in their league with 43 goals (4.3 per game) and conceding 8 goals this season in the league (0.8 goals). So we fully expect an entertaining match with plenty of goal mouth action. Financially the stakes start to raise and the winning club will be in line to picking up £1125 from the competition prize fund and the losing teams going out with £375.
