It's FA Cup Day and we entertain fellow 1st Division North Side Radcliffe Borough in the competition's Preliminary Round at the Butcher's Arms this afternoon.

Here is a piece from FA Cup Fact File

It is the the First FA Cup meeting between the two clubs

Radcliffe Borough made the First Round in 2000/01 whilst Droylsden have appeared in the Second Round twice since then and have not exited as early as the Preliminary Round in twenty years.

Last season in the League saw the Bloods draw 3-3 at home with their opponents while gaining a much needed three points at the Belvoir Stadium.

Borough have yet to get off the mark this season, losing their opening game at Brighouse and going down 4-3 at home to Mossley in a thrilling mid week tie.

The winner of the tie will entertain Evo Stik Premier League club Spennymoor Town at home in two weeks.
