\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nDate: Saturday August 16th\r\nCompetition: Vanarama Conference North\r\nVenue: Eon Visual Media Stadium, Ferriby\r\nKick-off: 3pm\r\nOpponents: North Ferriby United are currently enjoying the most successful spell in their history playing in the Conference North for a second season in a row.\r\n\r\nThe Villagers surprised many during their first campaign by finishing second, before coming undone to Guiseley in the play-offs; North Ferriby hosted the Tigers in their first ever Conference match, a 3-1 defeat for City.\r\n\r\nThe club finished runners-up in the 1997 FA Vase final and the Northern Premier League in 2013.\r\n\r\nThe Eon Visual Media stadium (known as Grange Lane to many locals) sits in the shadow of the Humber Bridge, which can be seen from the ground.\r\n\r\nTeam news: The Tigers will enjoy a squad with a near clean bill of health apart from Jack Harris (knee) who is close to returning to fitness and Lewis Hogg (knee) who is about a month away from returning to action.\r\n\r\nTim Harris’ men will head to East Yorkshire buoyed after a positive performance against promotion candidates Tamworth, despite the last gasp defeat.\r\n\r\nYou’ll be able to catch all of the action from the Lamb Ground on Twitter (@GCAFCofficial) and Facebook (GCAFCofficial) from 2.45pm tomorrow afternoon.\r\n\r\n Gloucester City’s media coverage is sponsored by Baylis Motors.
