Shots Help Hartley Play Hereford Tie

Aldershot Town groundsman Andy Nunn is lending his award-winning skills to Hartley Wintney FC to help ensure that their FA Vase fifth round tie against Hereford goes ahead this Saturday.

The sold-out tie was postponed last weekend due to a waterlogged pitch and, with further rain forecast for this week, Nunn will help The Row with pitch covers and sponge rollers at The Memorial Playing Fields in the build-up to the game and will also provide assistance on matchday itself.

Andy said: “We’re delighted to help Hartley Wintney get this huge game played on Saturday. It is a pleasure to be able to help our local football clubs, and having been involved in two FA Vase runs, with Aldershot Town and Holbeach United, I know what the competition means to those involved.

“The success of Hartley Wintney, and also Camberley Town, in this season’s FA Vase really seems to have captured the imagination of many football fans in this area. We wish both teams the best of luck.”

The winners of the Hartley Wintney v Hereford tie will host Camberley Town in the quarter-finals on Saturday 20 February.
