Cup Competition

By Kenneth BARKER-GRAHAM

Its nearly here

Well its not long now until we can hopefully resume our season and from 3rd April (hopefully) we will be playing the league stages of our knock out cups.

Unfortunately 4 teams have chosen not to complete this season and will return for the start of next season.

The cup will consist of 4 teams in 6 leagues (see fixtures and league tables) - This will be played on a home and away basis each saturday and 1 midweek in April where the champions and 2 best second placers will then compete in an 8 team skinny lager knock out cup with a quarter final semi final and final.

The remaining 16 teams will compete for the Burnley Eats cup knockout with a round of 16, quarters, semi and final.

The dates for these are as follows

Skinny Lager trophy - Last 8 - 15th May
Semi Final 22nd May
Final 29th May

Burnley Eats Cup --- Last 16 8th May
Last 8 15th May
Semi Final 22nd May
Final 29th May

the knockout stages will be drawn from a hat with the first team out gaining home advantage except for both finals which will be played on a neutral ground (to be advised)

I hope we can all have a good tournament and enjoy the new format.

All the best and may the best teams win.....
