Gloucester City handed AFC Fylde Trophy draw

Gloucester City have been drawn against AFC Fylde in the Third qualifying round of the FA Trophy.

The Tigers who have been handed a home tie will face the National League North table toppers for the second time this season having drawn 2-2 at Mill Farm in September.

City twice came from behind to level the game whilst things were even more heated in the stands, following violence from a small section of the crowd. Six supporters were ejected from the ground.

An inquiry was carried out and initial indications suggest that there won’t be a major risk of trouble at Whaddon Road for the Trophy clash.

The tie will be played on the weekend of November 26/27.

Both sides will meet for the third time this season a month after on December 17th at LCI Rail Stadium.

The draw comes after City’s good form was halted on Saturday, losing out to Curzon Ashton at home whilst Fylde drew 1-1 away at Darlington 1883.
