AFC Fylde’s host Radcliffe Borough this evening in the Lancashire FA Trophy  – a trophy which The Coasters have won three times in the last five seasons.

(7.45 KO)

The Coasters face Radcliffe Borough on the back of three straight victories and they now have seven wins from their last ten games in all competitions. Fylde advanced to the third round of FA Cup qualifying over the weekend as they saw off former Football League side Stockport County at Kellamergh Park and before that, The Coasters defeated both FC United of Manchester and Boston United without conceding.

Sitting second in the Vanarama National League North, The Coasters have had a strong start to the season. Despite being three points off the top, Fylde started this season exactly how they finished the last – with a winning mentality and the ability to get results. This fixture comes at a good time for The Coasters as they look to utilise squad rotation and give some players more game time as they look to impress and break into the starting eleven.

The same cannot be said about Tuesday evening’s opponents, Radcliffe Borough, as they sit eighteenth in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Division One. The Boro have only won two of their opening ten league fixtures and were knocked out of the FA Cup by AFC Liverpool in an earlier round. One positive for Radcliffe is that they all of their eight points so far this season have come from their most recent five fixtures after they defeated Prescot Cables and Ossett Town.

The Coasters most recent Lancs FA Trophy win was in 2014 when Chorley were cast aside with ease 4-1 at Bolton Wanderers’ Reebok Stadium, in a game which saw Michael Barnes grab a brace. The previous cup win was a 2-0 victory over Bacup Borough, whilst the first trophy win for AFC Fylde saw a 1-0 victory over local neighbors Bamber Bridge. 

The last game between these two sides ended 3-0 to The Coasters in the 2011-12 season as Fylde went on to win the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Division One title. The other result between these sides in that season ended in a 2-1 away win for Fylde. The season previous to Fylde’s Div One title saw The Coasters take four points from their two games against The Boro whilst the first two games between the two sides were both 1-1 draws in the 2009-10 season.
