Wingate & Finchley will travel to Devon this weekend looking to secure more cup success

Glen Little is preparing his Wingate & Finchley team for a long trip in the FA Trophy to Devon this weekend.

The Blues will visit Tiverton Town, of the Southern League Premier Division South, on Saturday looking to secure a victory in the second qualifying round tie.

Last weekend, they lost 4-0 at Potters Bar Town in the Bostik Premier and sit in 15th place in the table as a result.

Little’s men will forget about the division for this Saturday, though, as they visit Tiverton to take on the Gold Army.

A total of £4,000 will be up for grabs to the winner in prize money and Wingate will want to get their hands on the crucial financial reward.

Following the FA Trophy clash at Ladysmead, the Blues will turn their attention back to the Bostik Premier on Tuesday.
