On This Day: March 9th

Teenage goalkeeper Terry O’Hanlon was one of five forced changes for an FA Trophy fifth round replay against Woking on this day in 1999. Lee Elam, Lee Trundle and Ian Arnold were all cup-tied with Phil Bolland and Billy Stewart both suspended.

With the exception of Lancashire Junior Cup ties the Sandgrounders hadn’t won at home since November, yet were aiming for a second Wembley appearance in 12 months thanks to their cup form on the road. They were up against a Woking side that had won the FA Trophy 3 times in the past 5 years.
