UEFA Cup first qualifying round draw

The first qualifying round draw was made earlier today of course, and we are pitted against Faroe Island Champions EB/Streymur.

In all honesty I have absolutely no idea who this side are, and even had to make a cursory check to see exactly where they were located (although the club ebsite provide a nice pen picture of our forthcomng opponents). It isn't the largest of towns shall we say. The Guardian reports that the village has just 199 residents in the coastal village of Streymnes, and given their stadium has a capacity of just 1,000 the game may well be moved to the national stadium.

Despite the early start to the season and that the players will not be 100%, there is absolutely no reason at all why this tie is not wrapped up by half-time of the first leg. Looking at the Northern Section of the draw we are in, progress should also be made pretty comfortably through the second qualifying round as well.

The matches will take place on Thursday July 17th & 31st.

UPDATE:

Vital Football have some footage of one of last seasons games played at The Stadium. Should be some trip.
