Not ferry nice fixtures for Petersfield Town after exit from FA Cup

By Post in Football

PETERSFIELD Town are being made to feel the pain of being knocked out of the FA Cup in more ways than one.

The Rams crashed out of the competition when they were beaten 5-0 at Hellenic Premier Division side Thatcham Town.

Their early exit from the competition means the fixture list has been shuffled around and Petersfield now face two trips to the Isle of Wight in just four days.

They are now due to cross the Solent on August 19 to play Cowes Sports in the Wessex League, and they head to the ferry again on August 22 when they face Newport IOW in the Hampshire Senior Cup.
