London Lions are back in the FA Cup and for the first time brought the famous competition to Rowley Lane.
Lions became the first all-Jewish side to win an FA Cup tie in modern times when they first took part in the competition back in 2012 and now with promotion back to the Spartan South Midlands League last season, our application to take part once again was accepted by the FA.
This time, games are able to be held at Rowley Lane thanks to the facilities and the Alan Mattey Stand, previous home ties took place at Hemel Hempstead FC.
Whilst the dream of playing under the Wembley arch in a major final is probably more realistic for the FA Vase, all the players and management are excited to get as far as possible in the most famous of knockout trophies.
Having won the Extra Preliminary Round tie this weekend, the road to Wembley consists of a further Preliminary Rounds, and four Qualifying Rounds before the first round proper.
We now face Bostik League South Chalfont St. Peter in the Preliminary Round, a team playing two divisions above us.
