Two local sides have extra prize money to play for this weekend when they hit the FA Cup trail.

Armthorpe Welfare and Maltby Main both have home ties against teams from the North West Counties Premier Division in Saturday’s extra preliminary round.

Welfare host Glossop North End, while Congleton Town are the visitors to Muglet Lane.

With increased prize money on offer this season, victory this weekend is worth £1,500 to all participating clubs.

In the preliminary round that rises to £1,925, and then £3,000 in the following round.

Armthorpe face a tough test against Glossop but go into the game on the back of a morale-boosting 2-1 win at home to Nostell MW on Tuesday night.

Maltby, meanwhile, are hoping to better their run to the first qualifying round last season.
