Daniels want to be this sea­son’s FA Cup he­roes

Non-League

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

Gra­ham Drury is chal­leng­ing his Stam­ford squad to go out and be­come this year’ s FA Cup he­roes.

Drury wants his Daniels squad to seize their op­por­tu­nity by win­ning their sec­ond qual­i­fy­ing round tie at fel­low Evo Stik Divi­sion One South side Gres­ley on Satur­day.

Stam­ford are the only lo­cal side left in the com­pe­ti­tion.

Drury said: “Every player wants to do well in the FA Cup, and go on a run as they know they can make a name for them­selves.”

Gres­ley have be­gun the sea­son in im­pres­sive form, record­ing four wins and three draws from their open­ing seven con­tests. They cur­rently sit sixth, 14 places above Daniels, and ruth­lessly put six past Deep­ing Rangers in the pre­vi­ous round.

Stam­ford go into the con­test on the back of a 2-1 league de­feat at New­cas­tle Town which left the club lan­guish­ing in 20th in the table.

But Drury is not giv­ing up on his dream of an in­stant re­turn to the North­ern Premier’s top flight.

“It’s a bit more di­rectin our league, and the teams around us are used to that type of foot­ball,” Drury con­tin­ued.

“It can be an ugly league, but we’ve just got to fight our way out of it.”

Spald­ing are sec­ond in the same divi­sion af­ter beat­ing Lough­bor­ough Dy­namo 2-1 last week­end when pro­lific marks­man Brad Wells was again among the scor­ers.

Yax­ley pro­duced the re­sult of the first qual­i­fy­ing round in the FA Vase last week­end when thump­ing Ey­nes­bury 7-0 at In2i­tive Park. Phil Steb­bing scored four goals.

But Deep­ing, Wis­bech and Bourne all bowed out.
