CLUB STATEMENT: FA Trophy

Due to an FA enquiry into a player fielded in previous rounds of the FA Trophy by Kidsgrove Athletic, Ramsbottom United are unable to confirm when or where they will be playing in the next round of the FA Trophy.

The game was scheduled to be played next Saturday, 10th November, but we are unlikely to have a definitive answer as to who we will be playing or if we will be playing on Saturday until late on Wednesday morning.

One potential outcome of the FA ruling is that the Rams may be required to undertake a 4 hour journey on a Tuesday evening, which the club feels is totally unfair, and representations have already been made to the FA in this regard.

Until we have a definitive answer from the FA as to who our opponents will be and on what date, we have nothing further to add.
