League Cup group draw has been made.

By Stephen King

We have been drawn in the same group as Hertford, Harlow, Cambridge City, Soham Town Rangers and Histon.

You may remember from an earlier article that whilst the league cup sponsors, Velocity, will continue their support of the Alan Turvey Trophy there will be a change to the format of the competition with the division one sides playing off in ten regional groups; each club playing the other group members once. A formula will be applied to each group to determine which club will be at home and which away. The aim will be that clubs will play equal numbers of home and away games but this may not always be possible.

There will be three points for a win and one point for a draw in the group games but drawn matches will be decided by a penalty shoot out after ninety minutes with the winners awarded a bonus point. Clubs may use five players out of five nominated for the substitutes bench. Group winners will receive £500 and be placed in the knock out phase along with the 22 premier division clubs for whom entry is compulsory.

The group draw has now been made and our fixtures are:

Week commencing 2nd September: vs Hertford Town (H)
Week commencing 23rd September: vs Histon (A)
Week commencing 7th October: vs Harlow Town (H)
Week commencing 21st October: vs Cambridge City (H)
Week commencing 4th November: vs Soham Town Rangers (A)
