Football: Woking keep watch
Friday 21 March 1997
The Surrey side head for Scraley Road, the humble home of Heybridge Swifts, for a quarter-final tie against the Icis League team who thrashed another leading GM Vauxhall Conference club, Kidderminster Harriers, 3-0 in the last round.
"We certainly won't be underestimating Heybridge. They have some fine players," said Geoff Chapple, Woking's manager, who admitted that his side were "not in the best of form at the moment''. He hopes to be able to recall the former Wimbledon goalkeeper, Hans Segers, who played in Woking's 3-2 win at Dorchester in the last round but has been on holiday since the inconclusive end of his trial on match-fixing charges.
Woking are one of only two Conference sides left in the Trophy. Stevenage Borough entertain Colwyn Bay, the Welshmen who are one of three UniBond League clubs to reach the last eight. Ashton United visit Dagenham & Redbridge while Bishop Auckland are at home to Gloucester City.
Bishop Auckland's place in the quarter-finals was not secure until the Football Association rejected Altrincham's protest about the conduct of the Bishops' fans and players at Altrincham in the last round.
