CUP DRAWS ANNOUNCED
The Draws for the early rounds of the FA CUP have been published and Borough could make the 2nd Qualifying Round without leaving Coles Park. On the 16th August HERTFORD TOWN (Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division) will visit in the Extra Preliminary Round. Success in that game would bring GREAT WAKERING ROVERS (Ryman League Division One North) for the Preliminary Round Tie on 30th August and victory in that game would lead to a visit from CANVEY ISLAND (Ryman League Premier Division) in the 1st Qualifying Round on 13th September
In the FA VASE our exploits last season have earned us exemption from the qualifying rounds.
In the ESSEX SENIOR LEAGUE CUP the Final could be reached without leaving Coles Park. After a First Round bye ILFORD will be the Second Round visitors and success would bring a Quarter Final game at home to TAKELEY or STANSTED and victory in that would result in a home Semi Final against the survivor from FC ROMANIA, BASILDON UNITED, ENFIELD 1893, NEWHAM, BOWERS & PITSEA and HULLBRIDGE SPORTS
In the League’s supplementary Competition THE GORDON BRASTED MEMORIAL TROPHY the First round again brings ILFORD to Coles Park and the victors then visit HULLBRIDGE SPORTS in the Second Round. Victory there would result in a home Quarter Final tie against TOWER HAMLETS or SAWBRIDGEWORTH TOWN with the victors of that game visiting the survivor from CLAPTON, LONDON BARI, ENFIELD 1893, SOUTHEND MANOR or STANSTED in the Semi Final.
The only other knock-out competition Borough have entered is the LONDON SENIOR CUP for which the draw has not yet been made.
