THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF SALISBURY FC

Non League Paper - Salisbury vs Hendon

The NLP are specially featuring our game against Hendon, and that means greater coverage, with even greater pictures. You'll also be able to read what both managers have to say after the match.

From our point of view, it also means, of course, the promotion of our Club to a possibly much wider audience than normal!

Wilts Senior Cup - Bradford Town away - yet another change

This game will after all take place on WEDNESDAY 14 NOVEMBER KO 7-30PM, unless we are involved in a Trophy replay away at Merstham.

Should the Bradford Town game be postponed because of that happening, it would be played on the following Wednesday, 21st November, and the League trip to Weymouth on 20th November would then have to be re-arranged.

Manager Steve Claridge commented: "This will be an interesting tie, bearing in mind our Cup and League meetings with them last year.

I am very pleased to have a home draw, and want to make progress as this gives us more competitive action, and of course Cup football is something different that I, and I'm sure supporters, enjoy. We reached the semi-final a couple of seasons ago, and would like to go one better this time round."

The Action Gallery

Tomorrow night, in the Sarum Site, you will be able to see for the first time the results of our photographers' labours in creating an impressive gallery of action photographs. The pictures can be found opposite the Supporters' Club desk, and in one case one of the "monster" prints can be viewed as you leave the Sarum Suite to return through the turnstiles to go back to the terraces. Another large print can be found in another area of the bar, but you really can't miss them!

It is planned to refresh the framed photos on a regular basis as the season goes on, so, as they say, watch this space!

It has always been worthwhile going into the Sarum Suite - but now it's even more so.

Buildbase FA Trophy Draw

The Whites have been drawn away to Evo-Stik Division One South & West Fleet Town in the First Qualifying Round of the Buildbase FA Trophy.

 

Manager Steve Claridge commented: "We are pleased that we have a game against opposition from a league below us, but naturally disappointed not to get a home draw. 

We will show them every respect, and we expect a difficult game, but if both teams perform to their best on the day, then we should be OK, especially as our away form has shown signs of improvement recently.

It is a good draw from our supporters' point of view as of course it is only a short trip. Hopefully we can count on our usual substantial following."

 

The match takes place at Calthorpe Park on Saturday 27 October, kick off 3 pm, and the winners will receive £3250 from the FA Prize Fund.

BBC article on Salisbury FC

You can see an article, produced and commissioned by the BBC in Salford, on the main BBC Sport website, here:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/45655589

The article focusses on the effects of the unfortunate incidents in the City, as much as the effects of those on the Football Club, but it must be emphasised that all of those interviewed for the article were expressing their personal views.

Taken overall, and in context, it demonstrates the beneficial effect of the Club's presence and success in providing an outlet for Salisbury residents thoughout a difficult period.
