Emirates FA Cup Draw

Updated: Oct 18, 2022

Buxton will entertain Merthyr Town in the Emirates FA Cup First Round. Community-owned Welsh side Merthyr are currently mid-table in the Southern League Premier Division, one level below the Bucks in football's league pyramid.

Bucks' director of football David Brindley welcomed the cup draw. He said: "We wanted either a big team away or a home game that would be winnable. We've got the latter, but we won't underestimate Merthyr and can expect a tough time, hopefully in front of a packed crowd."

Team manager Jamie Vermiglio added: "We are happy to be at home. Although Merthyr are a lower ranked team they've beaten National League North opposition so we will have to be at the top of our game to progress to Round Two. We're looking forward to the challenge and we'll be ready."

The game is scheduled for Saturday, November 5th at the Tarmac Silverlands, kick-off 3pm.
