FA CUP AND FA VASE DRAWS MADE - Rovers get home tie in FA Cup and difficult tie away in the FA Vase / Team back in pre-season mode.
Rovers bagged mixed fortunes in the early round draws for the 2014/15 FA Cup and FA Vase competitions. In the FA Cup the route to Wembley (!) – Though more importantly for the likes of Rovers – the way to bank serious money – begins on Saturday August 16th with a HOME game against fellow Toolstation League outfit RADSTOCK. The winners will receive £1,500. The winners of that game will then, a fortnight later – on Saturday, August 30 – travel to either TORPOINT ATHLETIC or ODD DOWN with the winners of that banking £1,925. If still in the competition then Rovers will play a 1st Qualifying Round tie on Saturday, September 13 when £3,000 is up for grabs and the opposition would be one of SHEPTON MALLET or ILFRACOMBE TOWN or SLATASH UNITED or WELTON ROVERS. In the FA Vase, a competition which offers the likes of Rovers the opportunity to go much further – but offers far les financial winnings – sees a 1st Qualifying Round tie on Saturday, September 6, away at South West Peninsula League champions PLYMOUTH PARKWAY. The side winning that will bank £600 and then face a trip to KEYNSHAMTOWN in the 2nd Qualifying Round on October 4 and in that game the winners will bank £800.
