County Cup?

I know it's not exactly top of anyone's agenda but are we playing the next round any time soon? Or has it been done covertly?!!

A very low priority but a competition we've not won since 1996 and would give me a few moments of joy updating Wikipedia!

Edit: talking of Wikipedia, a bit of trivia that I added to the Gloucestershire Senior Cup page a few years back:

The 1950 final between Gloucester City and C********m Town at Whaddon Road had ended in a 1-1 draw.

A replay was held and, a crowd of 4,115 flocked to Gloucester City's Longlevens ground to witness the match. After normal time, the match had finished 1-1 again and it had been decided to play two 15 minute periods of extra time.

When the score was still 1-1 after the extra time expired, the captains and referee agreed to play a further 20 minute period of extra time, and afterwards, a further 20 minutes as the score was still level - a total of 160 minutes of play.

When the winning goal was scored by Gloucester's Doug Hunt in the 159th minute, the crowd spilled onto the pitch in jubilation, and the match was immediately ended by the referee.

Must be the longest game we've ever played, or longest most clubs have played!

The final could be a dress rehearsal for our huge, Xmas double header derby next season.

Sticking around a while yet, thanks to a gift from a generous angel.

Probably no longer..Cleeve have slipped out of the playoff picture recently..though Evesham are thereabouts. All aboard the Spiders and Hartwell Stadium chucklebus!

It can’t because it’s only the national league that do that.
