BROMSGROVE is right behind its football team in its ‘biggest match in history’ as the Rouslers face a tough FA Cup fourth qualifying round match.

Bromsgrove Sporting is set to face National League leaders Grimsby Town F.C on Saturday, October 16 on home turf – much to the delight of fans and the town.

The BBC has also confirmed it will be showing the big match on iPlayer and red button – showing the rest of the country what Bromsgrove has to offer.

Chairman of Bromsgrove Sporting, Mike Burke said the match is creating a buzz around the town.

“It is more than just one match – it is everything that surrounds the build-up,” said Mr Bruce.

Bromsgrove Advertiser: Long queues have formed to buy tickets for the all important fixture. Long queues have formed to buy tickets for the all important fixture.

“It will bring new people to Bromsgrove to find out what the club and town is all about.”

The club achieved a memorable run to the FA Vase semi-finals in 2017/18 but Saturday’s fixture is the club’s most important game yet, says Mike.

“We are predicting a sell-out – our stands can hold 3,500 people," added Mike.

“This will be something the town talks about for years to come – whether a win or lose”.

Reverend Stephen Levett attended his first home match on November 5, 2010 – only months after the Rouslers were founded.

“It was the first time I went to a non-league football match," said Rev Levett.

“The club were very keen to get people involved and they knew I was a reverend, so I became the club chaplain.


“Non -league football is more of a community – it’s not run by buyers

“It’s going to be a great watch and hopefully a big crowd, I have no unrealistic expectations but as a person of faith I should be believing in miracle!”
