As you can see it's a packed August fixture list, with 8 games for the lads to fit in. Traditionally it's a challenging time of the year, with players and staff away on holidays so James and Lee will be using the full depth of the squad throughout the month.
August also features another historic day for the club, as we welcome Liverpool side Litherland REMYCA to the Vestacare Stadium as our first ever opponents in the Emirates FA Cup. The last day of the month sees us welcome Yorkshire side Selby Town as we begin our Buildbase FA Vase campaign at home for the second season running.
