TWO Times Territory football clubs are about to set out on the road to Wembley in the FA Cup.
Welwyn Garden City have been drawn away at Flackwell Heath in the extra preliminary round of the famous competition.
They play tonight (Friday) with a 7.45pm kick-off.
Football committee chairman Dick Dunning is hoping the Citizens can progress through to the next round, where they will meet the winners of Oxhey Jets versus Brimsdown Rovers.
He said: "It would be nice to get the money from an FA Cup run, and it would also be nice to be able to give it to the players."
Meanwhile, Hatfield Town host Southend Manor in the same round of the knockout competition.
