History in the making
League cup semi final at Hamlin Lane 1sts v 2nds
A small piece of history is set to be made on thursday evening when Whipton & Pinhoe 1st team do battle against Whipton & Pinhoe 2nds for a place in the final of the League Cup Two tournament.
The first team won Group D and the Reserves won Group A of the competition set up to provide extra matches for clubs who were due to end their season early. The draw for the semis uniquely paired the two teams and I am not aware that this has ever happened before.
Over time both League and cup rules have always kept teams from the same club separate to avoid playing each other, so thursday nights clash may well be a first.
One thing is sure it should make for an interesting contest. The winners are then due to face either Priory or Feniton Development team who play their semi final next tuesday.
