Lancaster City will host Bamber Bridge in both teams’ first Lancashire FA Challenge Trophy game of the season on Wednesday (November 30).

It was initially scheduled for November 15 but was postponed due to a waterlogged Giant Axe pitch.

The two will clash in the second round of the competition, having both received a bye in the first round.

Lancaster City won the 2019/20 version of the competition, but only played the final of that competition in August last year, beating Prestwich Heys AFC 6-1.

The Dollies reached the semi-final stage of last season’s trophy but Southport knocked them out to reach the final.

Bamber Bridge exited the LFA Challenge Trophy in the second round last season at the hands of Chorley.

Bamber Bridge are seventh in the Northern Premier League Premier Division and will be full of confidence after a 5-1 win over Matlock Town at the weekend.

Meanwhile, 13th-placed Lancaster City have won four league games on the bounce, including a 1-0 win over Ashton United at the Giant Axe on Saturday.

Looking ahead to Wednesday, Lancaster boss Mark Fell told the club website that the game will be played “like a derby” and said “we’ll probably rest a couple of players because we have to”.

Fell says the competition is “high on the priority list”.

Lancaster City v Bamber Bridge in the Lancashire FA Challenge Trophy kicks off at the Giant Axe at 7.45pm on Wednesday
