Bottesford Town and Head of Media Operations Howard Pirie will be making a swift phone call to their local dry cleaning specialists to sort out their “Sunday best” as they have drawn “posh side” Witton Albion in the FA Cup 1st Qualifying Round.
“We’re over the moon to be facing Witton Albion. They are two leagues above us so shall provide a stern test. I understand they’ve got a lovely set up and are very welcoming. It’s in Cheshire so I imagine it will be posh. The lads will be instructed to have a bath the night before, brush their hair and cut their fingernails.”
The BBA (Bottesford Barmy Army) will be out in force on the “fun bus”, Our eight fans will be on their best behaviour and will rattle our jewellery when we win. It’s a real chance to rewrite Bottesford Town’s history books and progress further than we have before.
“It can be no coincidence that with myself and the BBA behind the team the world is our oyster.”
