We have seen good progression in the strength of our squad and the quality of our play in recent years and competing in the FA Sunday Cup will provide us with a good measure of how far we have come in terms of our development.”
The first round saw El Sol travel down to Essex to play a strong Sungate, coming home with a 1-0 victory. Chairman Mick Houghton said: “We are extremely grateful to the directors of Gorleston for agreeing to allow us to play this game at Emerald Park. It will add to the atmosphere and we are hopeful that local people will come along to support us.” Entry to the game is £2.
