CUP FINALS – SUNDAY 12TH MAY 2024

Sunday 12th May is a treat for lovers of our Cup Finals!

We have a full day of entertainment in store with 2 cracking ties on the menu.

In the morning we have the KELLY READ CUP FINAL between current holders AFC Saxilby who will be challenged by potential Premier Division Champions Nettleham Sunday FC.

The Saxilby based side have had a long hold on this trophy having won the Competition for 4 consecutive finals. They have not lost a match in this Competition since 2016/2017 Season and they will be keen to extend that record tomorrow for sure. The Competition lost 2 Seasons to Covid of course but AFC Saxilby, in particular “Bridgey” will say that that is nothing to do with them and the fact remains that they have not been defeated for 7 years. It pains me to say but for once in my life I have to agree with him!

AFC Saxilby will come up against the side who technically need one point from their remaining 2 League fixtures to take the top League prize for the first time of asking having seen a merger between AFC Golden Eagle and Nettleham FC. Kick-off for this one is at 10.45am and as always all are welcome. Challenging teams do not come more difficult than this so an intriguing match awaits in this final, that is for sure!

Prices for entry appear at the bottom of this post.

Then, at 2.30pm, we see the final of the RON EAGLEN CHALLENGE CUP, the League’s major Cup as all Clubs are required to enter their first team. This Season sees the current holders Hykeham Town TRFC defend their trophy against fellow Premier Division side Bassingham Bugle Horn FC. The Hykeham based team recently missed out on adding the Lincolnshire County Football Association County Sunday Cup to their impressive collection of trophies and you can guarantee that they will not be generous in relinguishing their hold on our most prestigious of trophies this time around!

Kick-off time for this one is at 2.30pm. The prices for both finals are as follows:

Adults £8.00 (Concessions for over 65s are £5.00)

Under 16s £3.00

Under 5s are FREE.

Programmes will be on sale at the point of entry priced at £2.00.

Please note that this is a CASH ONLY event. Pay on the door.
