FC Halifax Town have put one party on hold in the hopes of having an even bigger celebration.
The date for the club’s end of season awards dinner has been moved due to the Shaymen’s success in reaching the Conference Premier play-offs.
Manager Neil Aspin and his team booked a play-off spot with a 1-1 home draw against Kidderminster Harriers in their final match of the season and the extended season means that they will now face Cambridge United, who finished second in the table to champions Luton Town, at The Shay tomorrow night (7.45) before a second leg clash at the Abbey Stadium on Sunday (1.30).
In agreement with manager Aspin, the club have moved the date of the annual dinner, which had been scheduled for Friday night, to Sunday, May 11, at Bradford’s Cedar Court Hotel.
Aspin is hopeful that his side can set a marker tomorrow night in the home leg after an impressive record in the League at The Shay this season which has seen them lose only one league game at home all campaign.
“I must say that some of the form and play at home has just been tremendous,” said Aspin.
“We have scored in every game apart from the Braintree game, which again is a good record, and that has given us a platform.
“That is why we are in the play-offs because we have picked up so many points at home.”
