Despite the Club’s best efforts to arrange an alternative date, we’ve been informed by the competition sub-group that our Hampshire Cup Semi-Final at Basingstoke must be played on Tuesday, 18th April.
This, therefore, clashes with our Vanarama National League rearranged fixture with Wealdstone, meaning we will have to field our Academy under 21 side.
The Club wanted to move the fixture to give our supporters an opportunity to attend both our League fixture with Wealdstone and Cup fixture with Basingstoke but regret that unfortunately a choice between the two will have to be made.
Our under 21 side have, of course, helped us to reach this stage of the competition with a penalty shootout win over Baffins Milton Rovers in the Quarter-final and with a number of Academy players racking up senior appearances throughout this year’s competition.
We’re incredibly proud of their achievements so far in this year’s Hampshire Senior Cup and will be supporting the youngsters from Wealdstone.
We will provide as many updates as possible on the Hampshire Cup Semi-Final through our social channels and Club Website.
