Spurley Hey FC – Cup Competition

Jan 12

Since the beginning on November we have been playing cup games.

After going through the leagues complicated cup rules this is how I understand things stand – the whole age group are split into 4 mini leagues and each team play each other, once all games have been played the top two from each of the leagues move onto the second stage and again all play each other, the top two of the this second stage then play each other in a final!

3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw and if a game is called off the result is logged as a 0 – 0 draw.

We have now completed our 8 cup games ( two called off). League placings as it stands – 1st Spurley Hey 17 points, plus 18 goal difference. 2nd Bollington 14 points, plus 14 goal difference. 3rd Cheadle and Gatley 12 points, plus 9 goal difference.

There are some other fixtures from this weekend and Bollington have one more game next week against Inter Cheadle. If they win by more than 3 goals we will end up second but still qualify for the second stage.

This is an excellent response from the players after our only defeat this season in the 1st cup game against Bollington and shows how important the 1 nil win over Cheadle and Gatley was last Saturday.

Again well done to all the players.
