Glassboys Draw Billericay Town in Cup

Stourbridge have been drawn away from home against Billericay Town in the second round of the Buildbase FA Trophy.

The Glassboys saw off National League North side Leamington in the first round proper, beating them 1-0 last Saturday, and earned £6,000 of prize money in the process.

Stourbridge’s trip to Essex for the second round will take place on Saturday 13th January, which means their league game against Barwell set for the same date will be postponed.

Billericay Town currently sit second in the Isthmian League Premier Division – a step three league at the same level as Stourbridge.

They are three points behind the league leaders with five games in hand and have won an impressive 15 of their 18 league games. They have scored 48 goals and conceded just 13.

Billericay boasts two former Premier League players among their ranks in Jamie O’Hara and Jermain Pennant, while another former top-flight player, Paul Konchesky, recently left to focus on life outside football.

To make it through to the second round of the Buildbase FA Trophy, they beat Havant & Waterlooville 3-1 last Saturday.
