WARRINGTON Rylands are set to feature in the FA Cup live on the BBC for their 2nd qualifying round clash with York City, almost six years on from when near neighbours Warrington Town pulled off a fairytale cup shock in front of the TV cameras.
Their Emirates FA Cup second round qualifying tie against York City is being screened in the UK by the BBC.
The clubs will meet at Gorsey Lane on Saturday 3 October (3pm BST kick-off), with the game being shown live on the BBC Sport website, Red Button and BBC iPlayer.
The draw for the jackpotjoy promo code 2020 for the second round qualifying was made last Friday, following the conclusion of the first round qualifying earlier last week.
Their opponents are the highest-ranked team playing at this stage of the competition ending the aborted 2020/21 season second in the National League North missing out on promotion in the play offs.
Rylands progressed in the FA Cup for the first time int he club’s history winning a thrilling penalty shoot-out at higher league Whitby Town.
Six years ago, when the BBC were last in town for the FA Cup Warrington Town captured the hearts of the national with a thrilling 1-0 victory over Exeter City at a packed Cantilever Park before going out to Gateshead in the 2nd round proper.
Sadly Warrington Town’s FA cup journey ended at the first hurdle this season as they went out on penalties to South Shields.
