Banbury have reached the first round proper of the Emirates FA Cup for the second season running, with a 1-0 victory over Bath City. It earns the Puritans a home draw with EFL League Two club Barrow next month.

They managed to extend their unbeaten start to the season to 15 games with a single goal by Kelvin Langmead just before half time, in front of a bumper crowd of more than 1,500 at the Banbury Plant Hire Community Stadium on Saturday.

First Round games are scheduled to be played on Saturday 6th November at 3pm - but may be moved to a different date and time over the period Friday 5th November to Monday 8th November for any FA broadcasting commitments.

Happy manager Andy Whing
