BUXTON FC will discover this lunchtime (Monday) who they could face in the Second Round Proper of the FA Carlsberg Trophy, should they overcome Grimsby Town in their midweek replay.
Martin McIntosh’s men pulled off a shock at Blundell Park on Saturday by holding Blue Square Bet Premier league leaders Grimsby to a 0-0 draw in their First Round Proper tie. A replay is scheduled at the Silverlands for Wednesday evening (kick-off 7.45pm).
