With all due respect to Championship Manager and the Ryman League, we have done everything possible to get knocked out of the League Cup this season – especially as our fixtures have mounted up. We even lost at Tonbridge but got reinstated but our squad players have performed excellently to beat Sittingbourne and Croydon Athletic over the past fortnight.
So now, happily, we are in the Final at Met Police next Wednesday and let’s hope we can now enjoy a memorable night against Leatherhead.
It has been nearly 30 years since we won the Southern League Cup and clearly we have a great chance against Division One opponents. That said given the demands on our squad are at present (we are at Tooting tomorrow night) this will not be an easy game and remember Tilbury beat Harrow in the final last season.
Hopefully we will have lots of supporters there (all those who turn out just for the Final) and enjoy a great night and don’t forget to sign up for the Supporters Club coach to help you get there.
