Blackfield & Langley on the Wembley Trail
This Saturday, Blackfield & Langley, sponsored by Dawkins & Lodge, play the biggest home match in the history of the club when they entertain, National League South Maidenhead Utd in the 3rd Qualifying Round of the FA Cup. Victory on Saturday would leave Blackfield only 90 minutes from the draw for the first round proper, and the chance of welcoming Football League opposition to Gang Warily.
Blackfield & Langley play in the ninth tier of the English football pyramid. Of the 300 or so teams from this level that kicked off the FA Cup back in August, only 8 remain. The Sydenhams Wessex League, which B&L play in, is one of only two at this level to have more than one representative still in the competition. We would like to wish Brockenhurst the best of luck in their fixture against Wealdstone. Entry on Saturday is £8.00 adults, £5.00 concessions, Under 16 free. With no Premier League fixtures this weekend, why not take the opportunity to see your local non-league team try to match their greatest achievement of reaching the 4th Qualifying Round of the FA Cup.
