FA Cup[edit]

The draw for the preliminary round and first round of the FA Cup was held at a meeting of the Football Association on 29 August 1892. Ardwick were drawn away at Fleetwood Rangers in the preliminary round, although Ardwick made an offer to Fleetwood to transfer the game to their own stadium, which was accepted. A first round home tie against Workington awaited the winners.[2] The first match was drawn and Fleetwood refused to play extra time, forcing a replay, which was also held at Hyde Road.
