FOREST GREEN ROVERS v BILLERICAY TOWN

Billericay Town will be travelling 141 miles to Nailsworth in Gloucestershire for their F.A. Cup First Round match with League Two Forest Green Rovers.

Rovers were promoted in to the Football League at the end of the 2016-17 season by beating Dagenham & Redbridge then Tranmere Rovers in the play-offs.

These days they go straight in to the F.A. Cup at the First Round, whilst The Blues have played four matches, including a reply, to get here.

This will not be the first time these teams have met.

During the 1997-98 season Town were members of the Isthmian League and Forest Green competed in the Southern League. They were drawn against each other in the Second Qualifying Round of the F.A Trophy.

On the afternoon of 8 November 1997 a crowd of 426 people walked through the turnstiles of New Lodge and saw Jon Hooker score twice as Billericay won the match 4-0.

Town beat Aldershot in the next round but lost 1-0 at Dagenham & Redbridge a round later.
