West Bridgford Colts, having beat Dronfield Town 6-1 in the Preliminary Round, hope to keep progressing through the next 3 Qualifying Rounds of the competition to reach the 1st Round where Championship, League 1 and League 2 academies enter the competition.

Team Manager Chris Norris says “It would be great for the lads to keep progressing through the qualifying rounds and then get a draw against a professional club – what an experience for them that would be. Myself and my Assistant (Nathan Corden) really believe in the players’ ability and they deserve the opportunity to play on a big stage as such”.
