The Northern Counties East Premier League side have dispatched the leaders of both the North West Counties Premier League and the Northern League in the previous two rounds of the competition and will be brimming with confidence that they can complete a giant-killing treble when the favourites for the competition come to town on 6th December.

The Barnsley based club, formed in 2012 as an amalgamation of three local clubs, currently sit second in their division, some way behind runaway leaders Tadcaster Albion.

While the club traces its roots back to the formation of an under 11 side in 1991, Shaw Lane have had somewhat of a meteoric rise in recent years, moving through the Sheffield & Hallamshire County Senior League Division One after its first merger in 2011 before winning the Premier Division after its second merger in 2012 and gaining promotion to the Northern Counties East League (NCEL) Division One. A year later their meteoric rise continued when they finished runners-up in the NCEL Division One, winning promotion to the Premier Division.

Now their rise continues with major scalps in the FA Vase and if Shildon are to continue their quest to win the competition and merit their selection as bookie’s favourites, they will have to travel to the Shaw Lane ground and overcome the side whose name is on everyone’s lips at the moment.
