The big match day is just around the corner for the SeedGrowers. Our debut season in the FA Cup has seen us progress to the third qualifying round after wins over Witham Town, Berkhamsted and Walton Casuals. Coggeshall Town are just two wins away from the First Round of the FA Cup where the Football League clubs will be introduced to the competition. Next up for the SeedGrowers is a 414 mile round trip to Somerset to take on Weston-super-Mare, nicknamed the Seagulls, of the Conference South.
The Seagulls overcame Sailsbury via a replay in extra-time in the last round of the competition, which was indeed their first game in the competition having not been involved in the previous rounds. Weston-super-Mare have had a mixed start to the season, with their replay win over Sailsbury their only win of the season. They currently sit bottom of the Conference South, having played 10 games, drawing two and losing the other eight. Within the ranks of the Somerset outfit is Eli Phipps who some SeedGrowers may know as he has previously been on the books of Colchester, up until the Summer of 2018.
Coggeshall head in to the biggest game in their history without several members of the first team squad who have already featured heavily this season. Nnamdi Nwachuku and Josh Pollard are major injury doubts, whilst Luke Wilson is absent and unavailable for selection. Michael Gyasi, the hero from the last round, is out injured having suffered a broken elbow against Walton Casuals in the second qualifying round.
We hope to see as many SeedGrowers supporters in attendance as possible. We are already aware of many supporters who intend to travel down to Somerset for the game and everyone at Coggeshall Town would like to thank them for their continued support – we look forward to seeing you at the game!
