Coventry United confirmed as Lichfield City FC’s FA Cup opponents

Coventry United have been confirmed as Lichfield City FC’s FA Cup opponents.

An FA hearing awarded them the tie against Shawbury United after it was abandoned minutes before the final whistle.

Coventry were leading at the time when the floodlights went out.

There had been doubts over whether this weekend’s tie would go ahead as a result, but Lichfield now know they will travel to the Midland Football League Premier Division side on Saturday (August 20).

Both City and Coventry will be hoping to make it through to the first qualifying round for the first time, with a home game against Bedworth or Rocester awaiting them.
