/ Margate v East Grinstead (Velocity Trophy 1st Round)
Manager Steve Watt is likely to name a strong side alongside some Development squad players as they face East Grinstead for a third time this season.
Both sides have one win each from the two games so far with East Grinstead winning the pre-season friendly 1-0 at the GAC Stadium before the ‘Gate overcome the Wasps 3-1 at Hartsdown Park earlier this month in the 1st Qualifying round of the Emirates FA Cup.
Matt Longhurst’s side arrive at Hartsdown Park on the back of a 7-2 league win over Shoreham on Saturday but they still sit 19th in the Bostik South league table.
Margate striker Jordan Chiedozie remains suspended as he continues a three game ban for his red card at Worthing last Saturday otherwise Watt has full squad to choose from as they look to reach the second round and increase their unbeaten run to five games.
Season Ticket holders and Youth team players and Managers should note that due to this being a cup tie no FREE passes will be permitted and all supporters should pay on the turnstiles.
Kick off at Hartsdown Park is 7:45pm but as always if you can’t be here then you can stay right up to date on the clubs official Twitter feed @margate_fc from 7:15pm.
