It gives us great pleasure to welcome back the fans to Tuesday night’s ‘pay-what-you-want’ League Cup Semi Final clash with Kensington and Ealing Borough (7.45pm). Having been closed to supporters since the 4-0 win at Frimley Green in December, the gates will open once again as The Yellamen look to make it to their second consecutive league cup final having lifted the Hellenic League Cup in 2019. Remember it is tickets in advance here (pick your price!) and an online programme will be issued via email to you prior to kick off. You can also read/download it here right now! As a thank you to all our patient supporters this one is essentially on us.
The visitors are, of course, a step six side playing in Division One, but they hammered Premier Division Cobham 6-1 away from home to earn their place in the semi-finals, and are fresh from booking their place in the Middlesex Senior Cup final after a 3-2 win over Deportivo Galicia yesterday (Saturday).
Jamie Tompkins, meanwhile, had his ranks in for training yesterday ahead of the FA Cup Final, mindful of the threat posed having watched his side humbled 5-4 by Division One Ash United in the Fripp-Smith trophy a few weeks ago.
In the other half of the league cup draw, Sheerwater will play Abbey Rangers in the quarter final. The winners of that tie will play Redhill in the semi final, so whoever wins tonight will play one of those three in the final, currently scheduled for Saturday 29th May at Cobham FC.
Look out for a match report later on Tuesday evening.
In other news, Ascot United Ladies Reserves’ stunning form continued with a 3-1 win at Hillingdon Abbots on Sunday – lifting them to 2nd in the Thames Valley League 3E table with one match remaining – after recording their sixth win on the trot since their league programme restarted in April. Courtney Gibbons and Clodagh Farrell were on the scoresheet, assisted by an Own Goal.
