AFC Telford United have confirmed that their request to play their FA Trophy game at home to Coleshill Town has been turned down.
The Bucks, who were drawn away in the tie, have explained:
“We had requested yesterday to The FA and Coleshill Town to reverse the fixture so it could be played at the New Bucks Head, as Coleshill are in Tier 3, so therefore won’t be allowed spectators.
“Understandably, Coleshill management staff have rejected this request, as they would like to maintain home advantage, so the tie will remain at Pack Meadow.
“The fixture will be played on Tuesday 15th December, 7.45pm KO.”
