Rouslers all set for the FA Cup
10:53am Thursday 10th July 2014 in Sport
THE Rouslers will tackle Town in the Extra Preliminary Round on Saturday, August 16 (3pm).
If victorious, they will face either Coleshill Town or Nuneaton Griff on August 30, with a trip to Barwell in the first qualifying round awaiting the winners on September 13.
While this will be Sporting’s first appearance in the world renowned competition the club they replaced, Bromsgrove Rovers, had enjoyed success over the years in it.
Most notably, Rovers had a great run to the third round, where a capacity crowd watched them play Barnsley during the 1993-94 season.
Meanwhile, Sporting have also been included in the FA Vase.
They have been drawn away at Stourport Swifts in the First Qualifying Round on Saturday, September 6.
Victory would see them entertain either Tipton or AFC Hinckley in the next stage.
Meanwhile, Bromsgrove kick-off their friendly programme at FC Stratford on Saturday (2.30pm start).
The club have also unveiled the new coaches for the new U18s and 21s teams.
Trevor Carter has joined Sporting from Northfield Town to look after the under-18s.
Carter will be supported by coach Ross Knight.
Knight had previously coached the U18s to the County Cup in the 2012-13 campaign.
He has been involved with the Birmingham County FA Youth side.
The brand new U21s side, which will play in the Midlands League South East Division, is to be managed by Dave Smith.
Smith was previously joint manager at Bartley Green in the Midland Combination and more recently was assisting ex-Bromsgrove Rovers striker Steve Taylor at Heath Hayes.
Assisting Smith will be former Rover Jon Daniels, while Adam Went will be coach.
