Shaftesbury FC Will Make History In Their FA Cup Quest This Month

The manager of Shaftesbury FC’s first team says he is excited by the team’s FA cup performance.

Following Tuesday’s 4-2 win against Highworth Town, the local side is set to welcome Bath City at Coppice Street on 18th September. The last time the Rockies went this far in the competition was 112 years ago. If Shaftesbury FC beat Bath, it’ll be their greatest achievement in their 133-year history.

200 people watched Shaftesbury play on Tuesday evening. Manager Ollie Cherrett hopes at least 500 locals will turn out for the big home game.
