SALISBURY start their quest for FA Cup glory this Saturday, when they entertain Wessex League Premier Division outfit Hamble Club.

The south coast side booked their trip to the Ray Mac, after they beat Hampshire rivals Alresford, after a replay in the previous round.

For Saturday's contest, the Whites will be minus suspended captain Kane O'Keefe, while Josh Sommerton is unavailable and Brendon Mundy and Matt Partridge are both injured, so Salisbury have only three defenders for the tie.

Claridge said: "We have not got a back four for the game, but we will have to make do with what we have. I am taking nothing for granted, as we know what problems Fareham caused us and they play in the same league.

"I am expecting a tough game, but if we play as well as we can we should win the game."

"The FA Cup has good prize money, which can really help us and I hope there is a big crowd on Saturday, to cheer the boys on."

Hamble warmed up for their Salisbury trip with a 6-0 win at Ringwood in the Hampshire Senior Cup.

On Monday, the Whites are back in Southern League Premier South action at home to Swindon Supermarine.

The replays will be the week after if needed.
