Velocity Final Cup Chance

Only one domestic knockout competition remains for Town to have a crack at this season as Brightlingsea Regent are the visitors to the QEII Stadium in the Third Round of the Velocity Cup tonight.

The winners will be away to Hashtag United in the Fourth Round.

Following relegation last season, Regent have made a strong start in the Isthmian Division One North and are currently fourth with 25 points from 14 games. On Saturday they downed Brentwood 2-0 at home, overtaking them in the process.

In the previous round of the Velocity, they defeated Grays Athletic 5-0 and there will be a definite result tonight as it’s straight to penalties if we are level at the end of normal time.

After being humbled by lower opposition in the Middlesex Senior Cup, you can bet the players will not be under-estimating tonight’s visitors.

“I don’t think anyone’s gonna hammer me for saying the priority is the league but it’s not a competition we want to just chuck away,” said Gavin Macpherson.
