For many, the excitement of a Cup Competition gives you an adrenaline rush like no other. It’s all about the result, a bit of luck and having many of your supporters making a big noise inside a stadium on Finals Day.

The cup draws for the Charlie White, Morfey & J Lizzimore were made by Keith Everett (Fixtures Secretary) at a special Committee meeting, Thursday 2nd December at the May & Baker Sports & Social Club with myself, Roger & Bob in attendance.

The format of the Ernie George & Bellamy Cups has been agreed and these details will be released, alongside the draw at the January meeting with the clubs (intended). We may need to bring that to the earliest possible date should Keith require those comps for filling out the diary, but not before January 1st.

Here are the details of those Divisional Cups
