Fairford Town v Highworth Town
Uhlsport Hellenic League Challenge Cup R1

What’s the story?
Both sides will take a break from league duties with a Challenge Cup first round cup meeting on Tuesday night. The two sides last met in the same competition, during the 2015/16 season, with Fairford coming from behind to win on penalties.
A good number of selection options for manager Gareth Davies who has a number of former Highworth players in his squad – including Chris Jackson, Dan Drewett and Nathan Blackford.
Last time out…
The Reds were in league action on Saturday with a 3-1 win at Tytherington Rocks, whilst Highworth hosted Thame with eight goals shared in a 4-4 draw at The Rec.
Did you know?
The Worthians reached the Semi-Final of the FA Vase in 2015, where they were knocked out by eventual winners, North Shields in a closely fought two-legged tie. A fine achievement for a Hellenic League club.

In the clubhouse…
