New signing included in Norwich United FA Trophy squad
PUBLISHED: 06:45 07 October 2017
Norwich United take a break from league action today when they travel to Essex to take on Grays Athletic in the preliminary qualifying round of the FA Trophy.
The Planters will be hoping to show the form they showed last week in their 3-1 victory at Bowers & Pitsea rather than in the disappointing 3-0 home defeat to Soham Town Rangers on Tuesday evening which better reflected the Planters’ poor start to the season.
Grays sit just two places and three points above United following the side’s relegation from the Premier Division at the end of last season. However they gained a very respectable 2-2 draw at early season pacesetters AFC Hornchurch on Tuesday evening.
The two clubs have only met once before when the Planters, then a Eastern Counties side, lost 2-1 away in an FA Cup first qualifying match.
Planters’ manager Steve Eastaugh includes new signing Best Toke, a centre half formerly with Millwall and AFC Wimbledon as a youngster, in the squad.
