TWO of the High Peak’s non-league sides are in FA Cup action this weekend.

New Mills AFC host fellow Derbyshire side Mickleover Sports at Church Lane in the Preliminary Round on Saturday, while Glossop North End travel to Loughborough Dynamo. Both games kick-off at 3pm.

The Millers’ opponents, Mickleover, play in the Evo-Stik First Division South following their relegation from the Premier Division last season.

The winner of the tie will travel to face either Hucknall Town or Retford United in the First Qualifying Round a fortnight later.

New Mills’ scheduled bank holiday Monday league fixture against Ossett Albion (kick-off 3pm) is entirely dependent on neither side being involved in an FA Cup replay.

Should the Millers be involved in a replay with Mickleover then this will be played at The Raygar Stadium on Tuesday evening (August 28).

Glossop travel to the Nanpantan Sports Ground to face Evo-Stik First Division South side Loughborough Dynamo, with the winners at home to Grantham Town on September 8.
