Stockport Town have been drawn at home against Tranmere Rovers in the 2nd Round of the Cheshire Senior Cup. The game will take place on Monday 14th January, 8pm kick-off.
Having received a bye in the first round, Tranmere Rovers will provide a tough test for the Lions. The Birkenhead outfit are the highest ranked team in the competition, currently placed 9th in League 2. Furthermore, a number of the Stockport first team will be unavailable due to being cup-tied.
However, the Lions can take great comfort in knowing that last season they defied the odds to reach the final of the competition, the lowest ranked club to do so in the cup's history. That run included wins over higher ranked opposition including Hyde United and Winsford United before losing the final to Evostik Premier club Nantwich Town.
Tranmere qualified for the second round with a 2-1 away victory over Northwich Victoria, the goals coming from Franklyn Akammadu and Bailey Thompson. A number of first team players featured in the game so it will be interesting to see if this continues to be the case. Highlights from this game can be seen on the link at the bottom of this page.
After a good run of form in December the Lions will go into this game high in confidence. Come along to see how they get on. Entrance is £5 Adults, £3 Concessions and U16s.
