Swansea Draw Horsham In FA Cup

Swansea Draw  Horsham In FA Cup

The reward for Swansea City after the 2-1 win vs Billericay Town in yesterday's FA Cup first round is a tie away to another Ryaman Premier league side Horsham fc.

The Swans will travel to the Hornets Atspeed Stadium to face their non league opponents.

Swansea earned £16,000 for their efforts yesterday and should the club progress through to the 3rd round they will secure a further £24,000. Horsham fc booked their 2nd round berth with a infatic 4-1 win over Maidenhead United.

Are you happy with our second round draw?
The tie will be played either on the 1st or 2nd of December.

Hornets Manager John Maggs has given his first reaction to the draw and has proclaimed that the game is winnable despite the gap between the two clubs.

Maggs told West Sussex County Times:

"It is an excellent draw. We could not ask for better."

We just need to get our heads round it now and make sure we are organised for the game."

The three sides you would want were Nottingham Forest, Leeds or Swansea, so that's great. There could be a shock on the cards, I think it's a winnable game."'

Swansea have a very good chance of securing passage into the 3rd round of the FA Cup.However the Ryman leauge side will prove a tough test for the club.

Another tie against non league opposition is what you should be thankful for!!! You should be able to make round three no problem.

we only narrowly got through vs billericay. hopefully we've learnt our lesson and from some of the mistakes we made yesterday. we should make it through more comfortably against more non league opposition.
