11-11-19 - News - Harriers are going to Curzon Ashton in the Trophy

The Harriers will be travelling to a familiar ground in the 3rd Qualifying Round of the FA Trophy this season and thankfully it won’t be the War Memorial Ground in Stourbridge. We have, at last, managed to avoid them for now and instead we’ll be off to East Manchester to take on Curzon Ashton. It would have been nice to go somewhere new though.

This will be the ninth time that we’ve faced them and, to date, we haven’t lost yet. A few months back in August a solitary goal from Ashley Chambers was enough to gain three points there in a solid performance that moved us up to tenth in the table.

Curzon were in good form at the time but since then they’ve entered into a slump and now sit third from bottom. They did get a very good win at home to AFC Telford Utd on Saturday but by all accounts the defeat was of Telfords own making.

This Trophy game against the Nash will make a welcome break from all our called off games but sadly being away from home isn’t much help to our financial coffers with only two games at Aggborough this month. The next home game, barring a Trophy replay, will be against Southport on the last day of the month.
