Call for fans to pack out Cougar Park

Silsden host the well supported FC United of Manchester on Saturday in the North West Counties League Cup quarter-finals and manager Paul Schofield is urging the locals to pack Cougar Park.

"There has been a lot of interest from Keighley and Silsden and some of the Cougars' own fans have been talking about having a look but I sill think we will be outnumbered," said Schofield.

United sit second in the NWC Division One at the moment but have seven games in hand on leaders Salford City and are only four points adrift.

Silsden keeper Martin Foulger misses out through suspension while Sean Airey and Thomas Dibb are on duty with the West Riding County FA youth side.
