Tommy Wright’s team stand on the brink of a historic achievement for the club this weekend, with a chance to equal the clubs furthest progression in the FA Trophy the prize for a victory against York City.
It’s been 30 years since the club last reached the last eight, where Dartford were the team to halt the run in the 86-87 season. It was only the second time that the club had progressed that far, the previous time had seen Dagenham the victors. Now, having avoided teams from the southeast, and teams beginning with the letter ‘D’, perhaps the omens are a little better.
The club have once again kept the prices down, as extra incentive for people to come along, and it’s fair to say, that some of the sides best football this season has come in this competition, the away win at FC United, and the home drubbing of Guiseley, being stand out moments in what has been a wonderful run to the arches.
Therefore, we’re urging all of our members to not only come along, but to spread the word to all and sundry. We could be on the brink of a once in a generation game, and as Boro fans, we’re all far to well aware of our long run of misery in the Trophy, so maybe, just maybe, this year is going to make up for all of that…
We really look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at The Coombe Abbey Arena on Saturday. Up The Boro.
