\r\nDate: Saturday 13th September 2014\r\nCompetition: Vanarama Conference North\r\nVenue: Whaddon Road, Cheltenham\r\nKick-off: 3pm\r\n\r\nOpponents: AFC Fylde have had a remarkable short history, having only been formed in 1988 as Kirkham and Wesham, combining the two teams of Kirkham Town and Wesham.\r\n\r\nAfter playing in their West Lancashire League since their formation, they have enjoyed a meteoric rise since 2007 after being accepted into the North West Counties League after winning the West Lancashire League seven times.\r\n\r\nThe club won the FA Vase at Wembley Stadium in 2008, beating fellow Conference North side Lowestoft Town in the final.\r\n\r\nPromotion led them to the Northern Premier League at the first attempt, before they reached the Conference North last season beating Ashton United in the play-off final on penalties.\r\n\r\nThe Coasters have announced an ambitious plan to be a Football League club by 2022.\r\n\r\nHistory: Saturday will be the first ever meeting between the two clubs.\r\n\r\nTeam news: Tom Webb picked up a knock in the defeat against Leamington and won’t be taking part this weekend.\r\n\r\nJack Harris will be having a scan on his knee injury, but good news for Lewis Hogg who will likely be involved in Tuesday’s friendly against Lydney Town.\r\n\r\nNat Jarvis will also be returning to the Tigers fold after impressing with six goals in nine games for Cirencester Town and Antigua and Barbuda.\r\n\r\nYou’ll be able to catch full coverage of  Gloucester City v AFC Fylde on on Twitter (@GCAFCofficial) and Facebook (GCAFCofficial) from2.45pm tomorrow.
