Cup Competitions 2017/18

8 months ago By Simon Harrison

We’ve now turned the year and it means we’re almost at the knock-out stages of our Cup Competitions.

It’s been a different format this season for with the Murray Trophy, Open Trophy and Bridgewater Cup introduction of the group stages, which has been questioned by some, but there are only a few more games to go before the groups are completed.

Just before Christmas the League Management Committee conducted the draws for the next stage in the competitions, all of which were filmed. The Gilgryst Cup and Murray Trophy draws have been published here http://www.manchesterleague.co.uk/videos but the Open Trophy and Bridgewater Cup draws will be added once the editing has been completed.

The Gilgryst Cup remained as a straight knock-out format and the following draw was completed:

Avro v Rochdale Sacred Heart
Dukinfield Town v Springhead
Bolton County v AFC Monton
Heyside v Wythenshawe Amateurs

All ties will be played on Saturday 3rd February.
