Manager Danny Greaves is excited and ready to get back to business on Tuesday night as The Robins return to action at North Leigh.

The squad will travel to Eynsham Park for their rearranged Buildbase FA Trophy First Round tie, due to lockdown restrictions in November.

A dazzling display from Jon Davies and Rex Mannings saw us progress in the last round with a 3-0 win over Farnborough.

Greaves said: "Everybody is just looking forward to getting back to playing a game of football. We don't know when our next game will be so we just have to go out and enjoy it.

'It's a chance to get into the second round proper of a big national cup competition with a chance of a pulling out a big side such as a Gloucester City, Bath City or Hereford at home in the next round, not to mention the prize money at stake, so its a game we will be taking very seriously and preparing as best we can in the little time we have.

"North Leigh have already dumped 2 sides from our league out of the competition and had a great win (4-1 v Wantage) prior to lockdown so will come into the game in confident mood, and will provide a very tough opposition on their home patch.

"The lads have been working extremely hard during the lockdown, and with a good few days work on the training pitch, and a possible friendly game on the weekend, we will be ready."
