EMIRATES FA CUP EXTRA PRELIMINARY ROUND - HRFC vs HBFC
With big media build up to this exciting local derby fixture the lads from both teams did not disappoint to provide supporters a great game to watch whether on site or via BBC Sport coverage which were live streaming from start to finish.
The sun shone, the pitch looked magnificent (thanks to Parker’s Pitches) the atmosphere was electric and the result was just what the loyal Rovers supporters would have wanted - a 2-0 victory.
Both teams worked hard and gave it their all to not disappoint the large crowd of spectators that came to The New Croft facility to watch and support their respective sides.
The day was enjoyed by all with the Emirates FA Cup on site with photo opportunities and 33 lucky mascots had a match day experience to remember.
Rovers bagged the win but credit to Haverhill Borough for their good sportsmanship and we wish them well for the season ahead.
Special thanks once again to our FA Cup Day sponsors, PM Building Services who were match day sponsors and Blue Square Solutions Ltd, our match ball sponsor.
Additional thanks to The New Croft HCSA staff and our magnificent volunteers on the day to help make this event a memorable success.
Well done to Marc Abbott, Paul Miles,Dario Seminerio and the whole First Team Squad for their commitment to provide a great performance in an entertaining game.
Haverhill Rovers will now face Maldon & Tiptree FC in their next FA Cup (First Preliminary Round) Fixture at home on Saturday, 25 August 2018.
