This week sees the Cup Final programme commence with all 4 of the League’s finals taking place at Lincoln City Football Club, the proud
Champions of the EFL Division 2.
The first final is tomorrow evening and is the Jock Mitchell Memorial Trophy between Morning Star and Bottle & Glass. This promises to be a cracker of a match between 2 sides who have enjoyed fantastic Seasons. Morning Star are the Division 3 Champions this time around and this comes off the back of winning Division 4 last Season. Their opponent’s, Bottle & Glass, have just completed their maiden Season in the League and have finished in 4th place in a fiercely contested Division. The village based side would have finished level on points with the runners up spot had it not have been for an admin error which saw 3 points deducted from their record by way of League rule. Their “goals for” total of 94 League goals from 22 games played is mightily impressive, as is the tally scored by Morning Star with 67 goals netted in 20 League games.
Kick off is at 7.30pm and an exciting game of football is expected. Entry is £5.00 for adults, £2.00 concessions and there will be a raffle with a signed Lincoln City shirt signed by the first team being the prize on offer. All are welcome.
Wednesday night sees the Kelly Read Cup Final, better known to many locally and unofficially as the Village Trophy. This year sees FVA Jerusalem from Division One take on local neighbours Anglers FC from Saxilby. Anglers are the current Cup holders after their epic treble winning Season last time out and they will be going all out to retain the trophy after an indifferent Season by their own high standards. FVA Jerusalem will no doubt be on a high after finishing the Season in style by clinching second place in Division One in their very last game, thus securing a return to the League’s Premier Division after a few Seasons out of it.
This game promises to be an interesting contest, particularly if FVA’s free scoring this Season can be repeated against Anglers impressive defence.
Kick-off is 7.30pm with the same entry arrangements as stated above in the Jock Mitchell Cup Final review.
