Emirates FA Cup Second Round Qualifying
Spennymoor make the trip to the West coast to face National League North leaders AFC Fylde as attention turns to the Emirates FA Cup on Saturday.
Moors were handed the toughest possible draw on paper with a visit to the highest ranking team in the draw, however, spirits are high following back to back wins which featured eight goals without reply.
The form of Rob Ramshaw, who now has four goals and three assists this season, was on full display as he put on a scintillating performance alongside Glen Taylor in the 6-0 thumping of Farsley Celtic last weekend.
Taylor himself now has six goals and one assist, meaning Moors’ front two has been involved in 80% of Spennymoor’s goals so far this campaign.
The FA Cup draw provided Moors with yet another away draw, meaning their last six ties have all been on the road. In fact, the last time Spennymoor had a home FA Cup fixture was in September 2017 – a 2-1 defeat to Gainsborough Trinity.
Memories of the 2016/17 run to the First Round still linger heavily when associating Moors with the oldest cup competition in the world, but five years on from the tie at MK Dons, Tommy Miller will want to forge out a historic cup run of his own.
