On Saturday Rushden’s FA Cup campaign begins anew. Last season saw us beat Solihul and Macclesfield, before bowing out against eventual quarter-finalists Bristol Rovers. This season, for the Fourth Qualifying Round, the Diamonds have been drawn away at Southern League Prem. Side Evesham United.
Evesham currently play in the 7th step of British football, alongside teams like Brackley Town, Farnborough and Corby. The Robins have had an inconsistent start to their campaign, and are currently 14th after 10 games. However, they do have the best defense outside the top-eight. They have never reached the 1st round proper of the FA Cup.
