We’re back to Essex for our next FA Cup game which this time takes us to Canvey Island. Members of our league’s North division they will clearly be a different proposition to Southend Manor, our opponents in the previous round.
It will be the eleventh meeting between the sides with Canvey having scored four wins to our two. Two of those meetings have been in cups, both at Park Lane with Ware suffering one heavy defeat and one close victory via a penalty shoot-out. That is a possibility this time round as well, there being no replay of this game should it be tied at 90 minutes.
Our last visit to Park Lane came at the very end of the 2017/8 league season with a drawn game that according to my totally unbiased report might have gone to Ware. Can we go one better this time?
Last season the Gulls, like us, went as far as the 3rd qualifying round before losing to Step 3 opposition.
