SALISBURY FC begin their FA Cup this afternoon when they take on Bridgwater United at the Ray Mac. 

It comes at a good time for the Whites who are unbeaten so far this season, with three wins and three draws from six games. 

It could have been even better if not for Winchester City scoring a 97th-minute equaliser against the Whites on Bank Holiday Monday. 

Salisbury manager Brian Dutton told the Journal back in August that his side were keen to deliver a good cup run for the fans: ""A lot of fans want a cup run because they have been denied it for a while now. Those occasions stay with the fans and we want to deliver that but a lot of it is luck with cup competitions but we will do our best."
