What with the F.A. Cup still generating so much interest, and the F.A. Trophy draw made today at Wembley the F.A. Vase has taken a bit of a backseat lately.
But Bromsgrove Sporting’s excited supporters certainly do not see it like that.
Their buzz hasn’t ever stopped ahead of their F.A. Vase Semi-Final with Cleethorpes Town.
Already they have sold around half their tickets for the home leg, which will take place on 11th of March.
They expect to sell their 300 allocation for the away game on Humberside as well a week later. Now their manager Paul Smith believes these are just the start of the good time around about to return for Bromsgrove.
The club were forced to reform in 2009 when the fans could only watch on helplessly as the club folded.
Playing now in the Midland League Division One, this is the moment so many have been waiting for. Nearly 3,000 watched their Quarter Final win over Buckland Athletic.
But while the whole area is talking about it, the club’s manager doesn’t want his players to be!
“It’s so important we put the Vase to the back of our mind until it comes round,” he said.
“We want to win the league, that’s always been our aim, and we need to keep focused on every match and not allow minds to wander.
“We need to put the F.A Vase to bed until it’s time for that game. There’s a lot of matches before it so let’s win those and go into the Cleethorpes game with great momentum.”
