Bright start at Brimscombe – now for the magic of the FA Cup

Neil Mustoe’s Tuffley Rovers side travelled to The Meadow on Wednesday evening and returned with a valuable league point, in the opening week of the Hellenic League season, from a 0-0 draw with Brimscombe & Thrupp.

Dom Kent went closest to scoring for The Rovers, only to be denied by an excellent save from Gavin Jones in the Brimscombe goal, but clear chances were few and far between, in a game keenly contested but where the two defensive units were very much on top.

With our first league fixture of the season completed, attention now turns to our Emirates FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round tie with Slimbridge AFC this Saturday, which promises to be a big day for the club.

Admission rates have been agreed between the two clubs, as is required for FA competitions, as follows:

Standard Adult admission                                      £7

Concessionary admission (O65s or ages 15-17) £4

Children (U15s)                                                        £2

Just a reminder that season tickets are not valid for FA Cup, FA Vase or FA Youth Cup ties played at Glevum Park during 2022/23.

We are very grateful to former player Peter Thomas, who is Saturday afternoon’s match sponsor through his excellent local public house The Pike & Musket.
