Third Round Qualifying
It was time for a weekend away… After the midweek trip in the last replay in which Ferriby won 3-0 I needed to reinvigorate myself with a a day of entertainment and I was not to be disappointed.
The game itself was a spectacle and I thank both teams for giving it their all. It was North Ferriby who took the spoils and progressed with well earned 2-1 victory. It could have been 3-1 if it wasn’t for a fantastic save in the dying minutes of which I got some footage.
The crowds are certainly starting to bulk up now and Ferriby who are on a superb unbeaten run are starting to be noticed.
The draw today reveals that North Ferriby will take on either Chasetown or Stalybridge in the next round which will be the final round before the 1st round proper. Things are starting to get serious….
One thing that also made my day was meeting the legend Marlon Harewood who had a short spell as a Blackpool player in the Premier League scoring 5 goals. Only spoke briefly but he seemed a classy guy and was happy to let me get a snap with him.
Again some wonderful people were met and the journey remains an enjoyable one. Not long now though until we get into the potential future changing opportunities some of the prize money and tv revenue can bring for these clubs.
