Robins back in action in FA Trophy

Evesham Editorial 1st Dec, 2020   0

EVESHAM United make their post-lockdown two return to action with an FA Trophy first round tie at home to Bideford on Saturday.

The 3pm kick-off at the Jubilee Stadium is one of two all-Southern League Division One ties and the only all-South encounter.

Evesham progressed to this round courtesy of a thrilling 3-2 home win against Northern Premier Division One South East side Leek Town in which Harry Franklin netted a hat-trick for the Robins.

The Devonian Robins have yet to record a league win in six attempts but did beat divisional rivals Slimbridge, also 3-2, in the previous round of the Trophy.

Meanwhile, Step 3 and 4 (Evesham United) clubs will be asked to vote on whether the league season will remain paused.

Email voting will take place following tonight’s (Tuesday) meetings with clubs about the impact of the tier system.

Votes must be submitted by Wednesday night and results will be published on Thursday.
