Benn knows the importance of a good FA Cup run

It’s FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round action for Hemsworth Miners Welfare on Saturday, as Wells host North West Counties Premier League side Runcorn Town at the Yorkshire NuBuilds Stadium-and, as you’d expect, Wells Manager Wayne Benn certainly hasn’t lost sight of the financial implications of a decent FA Cup run and has run the rule over the opposition, writes Colin Muncie.

Wayne told the Bootiful Game “On Saturday we face what looks like a very difficult tie in the FA Cup against Runcorn Town of the NWCL Premier Division. They finished third last season and have got off to a good start this season with 2 wins out of 2 so we know that we are in for a real test. All you can really hope for is a home tie-which we have got -and we need to take advantage of that. If we perform to the level that we are capable of then we will give ourselves a great chance of getting through to the next round and the bonus of that is the finance that is on offer.”

Wayne is a fan of the Competition, but isn’t looking beyond the weekend. “FA Cup games are always good occasions and exciting to be a part of” he admitted “and we would dearly love to get through two or three rounds for the exposure it brings -and of course the extra revenue it creates -but it really is so difficult to do.

Wayne added “It’s long overdue for us to have a bit of an adventure in the FA Cup and like every team that enters we want to stay in it for as long as possible; but in all honesty my only focus is trying to get through on Saturday against a very good side”
