Original: Willenhall Town will be suited and booted when they start their road to Wembley as they travel away to Dales Lane in Rushall to face Continental Star in the 2nd Qualifying round of the FA Vase. Continental Star will be looking to avenge their preseason 2-0 defeat.
Willenhall received a bye in the first round whilst Star beat Heath Hayes. Kick off is 3pm. A reminder that the final is played at Wembley on the 9th May so keep that date free in your diary!
And as if you had forgotten, Willenhall Town played at Wembley in 1981 in the final of this very competition. Take a look at our You Tube page for highlights of the occasion.
