SOUTH Park are dreaming of another big day out in the FA Vase, but know they face a tricky task to get there.

Park travel to Rye United this Saturday looking to progress to the national stages of the competition for the second year running, having lost out to four-time winners Whitley Bay in the last 32 of the competition last season.

If they win, Park will guarantee themselves a place in the second round again next season, but manager Joe McElligott knows it is likely to be a tough encounter for his side.

"Rye are one of the more experienced Sussex County League sides and have done well in the Vase before," he said.

"We know it is going to be a difficult task, but we are looking forward to it - we love the opportunity to test ourselves against teams from other leagues."

Park were originally due to face Spartan South Midlands Division One side Amersham Town after they defeated Rye in the last round 1-0.

But the Buckinghamshire outfit were removed from the competition after they were found to have played an ineligible player in that match.

However, McElligott said that Rye would be difficult opponents, with the Sussex side currently third in the Sussex County League Division One.

The Park boss said: "They have one or two very good players and we understand that they play quite a direct game.

"But we go there with no fear, we just love playing in these cup competitions. Of course we would love to get as far, if not further than last year."
