First time as a fan owned club
We head to Tamworth looking to reach the first round proper of the FA Cup for the first time as a fan-owned club.
The last time we played at this stage of the competition was when we played Hinckley in season 2011-12, and we lost in a replay. The rest, as they say, is history. The season before that, we won at Mossley.
Quakers have won twice away in the competition so far this season, while opponents Tamworth won at Hereford on penalties in a replay in the last round.
