FC Halifax Town are on the verge of their first ever Wembley final - and you could be at The Shay next Saturday to help roar them to victory.

Halifax face one of their biggest games for years next weekend and will need a capacity crowd to support them on the road to Wembley.

The Shaymen are in the semi-finals of the FA Trophy for the first time and travel to play Nantwich tomorrow in the semi-final, first-leg.

We want the whole town to get behind the team and to create an ear-popping atmosphere at The Shay for the second-leg next weekend.

You can be part of what promises to be a memorable occasion by entering our special competition.

We have FIVE pairs of tickets to give away for the FA Trophy semi-final, second-leg against Nantwich next Saturday.

Town chairman David Bosomworth believes it’s crucial the town turns out in force to get behind The Shaymen.

“It’s vital we get as many fans to see us as possible over both legs,” he said.

“FA Trophy semi-finals don’t come round often and we need the fans to cheer us on not just if we are winning but if things aren’t going right.”

To be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets for next Saturday’s game, answer the following question: Who did FC Halifax Town beat in the quarter-finals of this season’s FA Trophy?

Entries must be by email to and the closing date is noon on Tuesday, March 15.
