Slimbridge visit as Rovers dream of cup glory

Tuffley Rovers will welcome Slimbridge AFC to Glevum Park today (3pm KO) hoping to secure a memorable victory and the opportunity to advance to the Preliminary Round of the 2022/23 Emirates FA Cup.

There will be some familiar faces in the opposition line-up, with former Rovers Joe Shutt, Jacob Geddes, Ben Prictor and Toby Lawrence all named in the provisional Slimbridge squad. Shutt and Geddes will be making their first competitive appearances for the visiting Swans, who will arrive at Glevum Park looking to improve on a record of exiting the competition at the first round (entered) in four of the past five years.

Rovers have a similarly disappointing record in recent years, having failed to make it past the Extra Preliminary Round in four of the last six seasons. Last season they did manage to make it past that stage, winning 3-2 at Windsor, before losing to Flackwell Heath after a Preliminary Round replay.

The Extra Preliminary Round tie will kick-off at 3pm at Glevum Park. Just a reminder to Rovers supporters that season tickets are not valid for the FA Cup tie and admission rates on Saturday will be £7 (Adult/Standard), £4 (Concessions) and £2 Children (Under 15).
