Hook Norton manager Joe Davies is urging villagers to get behind the Brewery Boys as they bid to keep their Emirates FA Cup run going.

Hooky entertain Vanarama National League South strugglers Weston-Super-Mare in Saturday’s second qualifying round tie at The Bourne.

Weston remain bottom of the table but only lost 2-1 at leaders Ebbsfleet on Tuesday.

Davies said: “To have a National League South side come to play at The Bourne is unbelievable and when the draw was made everyone was delighted.

“This weekend will be on a different scale and we really can’t wait.

“The Bourne will be rocking, I want as many people to come along and really get behind the team and the club. Days like these don’t come around too often so to make a real occasion of it is something we have to do.

“We know the enormity of the task at hand but I can guarantee my players will be well up for it. We will train well this week and the players will be raring to go come 3pm Saturday.

“I’ve spoken to Justin Merritt at Oxford City who has been very helpful with giving us some info on Weston.

“If my players go out and show the same determination and character they have shown so far this season then we will really give Weston a stern test.”

Danny Poole is Hooky’s only doubt after he hobbled off at Eastbourne United in the previous round and he will have a fitness test before the game.
