Come on you Reds!
after our win against Met Police, we have a great chance to reach the semi finals as we play Ware in the next round. They are currently bottom of the Ryman League North, having won two games only in the league, both of them coming back in September. Those wins came against Romford (currently 18th) and Waltham Forest (23rd). In this cup run however they have beaten Thamesmead Town and Witham Town on penalties.
Other teams left in the cup: Maidstone, Grays, Chatham, Harlow, Burgess Hill and AFC Sudbury.
Re: League Cup
We're the mighty Harrow Borough and we're going to Wembley!! Wembley!! Oh at last, a cuo run! This brings back memories of our run to the final a number of years ago when we lost in the final to giant killing Tilbury who broke our hearts which was played at Staines FC. In a strange sort of way, it's a terrible draw! Ware sound like just the sort of team that we always lose to! Bottom of the league and can't win to save their lives pretty much ticks all the boxes! On the cautious side, their goal difference is quite good considering their position but still no excuses for not beating this lot.
Re: League Cup
out of curiosity, without trying to get ahead of ourselves, does anybody know where the final will be?
Re: League Cup
No but I remember last time we got to the final, we were due to play at Dartford FC but at late notice it got changed to Staines FC. That suggests there may not be a ground in place and then perhaps nearer the time, the league find a ground and presumably a current Ryman league ground as Dartford and Staines were in the Ryman league at the time although I may be completely wrong.
League Cup Final Venue
The Powers That Be tend to wait until most of the likely contenders have been eliminated before making any sort of decision.
Ideally, they like to wait until the finalists are known.
It's a midweek game, after all: a possible long schlep for one or both clubs and the blazers mightn't want a delay caused by a team getting stuck in M25 traffic if the supply of decent vino in the clubhouse is only going to last three hours.
It will be at a current Ryman League ground, though.
Maidstone was always going to be favourite last season, though they didn't announce the venue officially until the finalists were known - about five or six weeks before the final.
Dartford was another nice new ground Messrs. Turvey, Badcock and Robinson would've fancied sampling the hospitality in. As it happens, it was about half-way between the finalists for Ramsgate v. Sudbury.
Your win last night shortens the odds on the traditional market leader in the "Who Will Host The Final?" book. With a lack of shiny, new stadiums this term I'd expect another trip to Thames Ditton may have been pencilled-in.
However, the other quarter-finalists are all east of the A10/A23. I'd expect the Politburo to hang on for a while. Champion Hill might be a fair each-way bet.
Re: League Cup Final Venue
I enjoyed our visit to Maidstone , so would be happy to go back their , even if Maidstone were the other finalists. hang on a minute we haven't even played the quarter final yet, but hey , we don't get to talk about cup runs often .
