The FA Cup
Chasetown FC will kick off their FA Cup campaign with a home clash. The Scholars will face either AFC Wulfrunians or Boldmere St Michaels in the Preliminary Round of the FA Cup on August 29. Should they come through that test at the Scholars Ground, they’ll then take on either Kidsgrove Athletic, Bewdley or Alvechurch in the First Qualifying Round on September 12. Charlie Blakemore’s men have also discovered where their FA Trophy quest will begin. Chasetown will travel to Lincoln United in the Preliminary Round on October 3, with an away trip to either Prescott Cables or Lancaster on October 17 if they come through that test. Meanwhile, the Scholars’ young guns will visit Bedworth United in the Preliminary Round of the FA Youth Cup on September 7.
