Law’s men ready for Gateshead cup game

Have your say

This Saturday, Alfreton turn their attentions to the FA Cup and a fourth qualifying round home tie against fellow Blue Square Bet Premier Division rivals Gateshead.

It will be a first ever FA Cup tie against the Tynesiders for the Reds and Nicky Law’s side will be looking to reach the first round proper for the third time in the last five seasons. As well as a place in the draw for the first round proper, there is also £12,500 prize money for the winners of the tie.
