|MOSS ROSE, MACCLESFIELD
|THE NEW MEADOW, SHREWSBURY
Amongst aall the doom and gloom of 'Broken Nose Bruce's appointment az forst team manager/coach/yes man, a bit of good news, az wor resorve U21 side have been drawn against 2 teams who's groonds we have never been te before, in the EFL Trophy!
NUFC U21s led by Neil Redfearn are in Group 'D' of the competition and will travel to Port Vale, Shrewsbury and Sol Campbell's, MACCLESFIELD!
We've highlighted 'Macclesfield', az wor resorves have play here before, but unfortunately the game v Stoke U23s clashed with a forst team game at Cristil Pallis and az forst team games take priority, we were forced to miss it!
This iz the ANLY current Futbaall Leegue groond where an NUFC team have played, where 'The NUFC mad-sad groundhoppers' HAVENT been tee!
Although we have been to Shrewsbury before, many years ago, this woz at their old Gay Meadow groond! Since then they have moved on to a stadium on the ootskirts caalled 'The New Meadow'
Anothaa new groond then!
The anly groond we have been tee before in the draw iz Port Vale's, Vale Park.
The forst games take place at the beginning of September:
Tue 3rd September: MACCLESFEEELD away (ko '7:45 bells')
Tue 24th September: SHREWSBURY away (ko '7:30 bells')
This iz in the week of the Caribou Cup 3rd roond az well.
Should Shrewsbury progress to this stage, then the EFL game will be cancelled---Aalso should NUFCs 1st team get through to this roond and Shrewsbury lose, then we could be forced to miss the game if Caribou Cup and the EFL Trophy games are on the same day!
(NUFC 1st team games get priority!)
Tue 12th November: PORT VALE away (ko '7:45 bells')
