BRIGHOUSE Town are aiming to punch above their weight by knocking Ashton United out of the FA Cup first round qualifying on Saturday.
The Tameside team, once managed by Brighouse boss Paul Quinn’s dad Gerry, play in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League top flight.
That’s a level above Brighouse, newly promoted to the NPL Division I North and aiming to reach the second round qualifying for the second season running.
Ashton have twice reached the second round proper, but that was back in the 19th century, when they had their original name Hurst.
Renamed in 1947, Ashton kick-started the career of 1966 World Cup winner Alan Ball, while their current squad includes former Huddersfield Town defender Greg Pearson.
Brighouse will be aiming to bounce back after Tuesday’s 4-1 home league defeat by Spennymoor Town.
Vanarama Conference pacesetters FC Halifax Town go for a seventh win of the campaign away to Forest Green Rovers.
While the Shaymen drew 1-1 at Macclesfield on Tuesday, their Stroud-based hosts were beaten 1-0 at Nuneaton.
The Forest Green squad includes former Huddersfield Town loan striker Jon Parkin.
Halifax RL are in Kingstone Press Championship play-off action at Featherstone Rovers on Sunday.
