Impdom Is Up For The Cup
Ok so one win against Wrexham does not mean all is right in Impdom, but, ahead of the FA Cup tie against FC Halifax, it gives massive grounds for optimism.

With Halifax set to bring at least 600 this Saturday, a decent response to the Dragon’s result should see at least 2000 Imps turn out. Add £12,500 in prize money and this could see the first match receipts of the season to match the 3,000 break-even figure. Even with the reduction in ticket prices, season ticket holders will have to pay to gain entry so what could really kick-start a revival in fortunes.
Halifax wont be easy, as they have a strong side with some decent ex-League players. They are also paying out some good money it has to be said. Reformed in 2010 they look good enough to join us in the BSP despite a 2-1 defeat, their first in seven, against Boston at the weekend. They host Vauxhall Motors on Tuesday, to leave them 5th with two games in hand over Oxford City who are a point ahead. Grant Brown is set to do some scouting, just as he did last Wednesday, when he picked apart Wrexham’s 3-2 win at Stockport. The midfield strategy on Saturday was superb, despite Morrell’s bad day at the office quote.
The FA Cup could yet boost the coffers ahead of January. Win this and a victory in Round 1 could mean another £18,000 in prize money. The live TV games also start from Round 1. There will be 3 of them with each side getting £67,500.
