First ever FA Cup tie is a proud moment for Golcar

FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round 

Golcar United joint manager Ash Connor

Ash Connor says Golcar United’s FA Cup tie at Stocksbridge Park Steels is a huge moment in the club’s history.

Golcar, one of the region’s most progressive clubs, were playing on a park field several years ago.

Now they’re set to take part in the world’s oldest cup competition.

“It is a massive for the club and a proud moment,” Connor told Non League Yorkshire.

“For myself, Gav, Joe Skarz and the players it is a massive achievement for us.

“When we first set out (on the journey) I remember the club president Ian Whitehead that it was an ambition of his for the club to play in the FA Cup.

“It is a big achievement for the club and one we’re really proud of.

“I always say it all the time, this is why (we re-developed the ground to go up the leagues).

“This is reason is why we went from being an amateur to a semi-professional team – for things like that.

“We’re all looking forward to it.

“The FA Cup is massive.”

Connor says his men face a tough challenge in Stocksbridge.

“I would say we’re underdogs,” he said.

“They are a league higher but we’ll give it our all.

“I know they will be a very good side and it will be a real test.”
