Taking coals to Coalville
The former coal mining town of Coalville Town in Leicestershire will visit the Addicks for the FA Cup 1st Round proper on the weekend of November 4-7th.
The Coalville players enjoyed their name coming out of that hat against us, and I only hope for their sakes the draw entices home fans out of their homes and to the game.
I think the FA dictate pricing to some degree, but let’s hope Thomas Sandgaard helps a potential lucrative cup run by pricing this game enticingly for both sets of supporters so at least there will some kind of atmosphere.
Coalville average around 400 at home, but took 1,400 to Notts County in the last round.
The Ravens play in the Southern League Central Premier Division, one below Welling United.
