POTTERS Bar Town will be hoping to upset higher league opposition on Saturday as they entertain AFC Hayes in the FA Trophy first round qualifying.

A 2-1 preliminary round triumph for the Scholars over Heybridge Swifts set up the clash with The Evostick League Division One Central outfit, who themselves saw off Cheshunt 2-1 at the same stage.

Former Town duo Terry Smith and Dennis Maharjan now ply their trade with Hayes and will be looking forward to this weekend’s return to the South Mimms Travel Stadium.

While the prestige of getting as far in the competition as possible is the main aim for both managers, the financial benefits of prizemoney will also be in the back of their minds.

Saturday’s winners will collect £2,200 and a place in the second round qualifying.
