The draw was made recently for the NWCFL Macron Cup. This is the NWCFL League Cup competition and involves teams from all 3 divisions, D1N, D1S and the Premier Division.
We have been drawn as follows :
Round 1 Avro FC v Vauxhall Motors FC - Saturday 19th October KO 3pm
Round 2 Longridge Town FC v Avro FC/Vauxhall Motors FC - Saturday 19th November Ko3pm
Last season we reached the semi-final of the competition, losing over 2 legs to Premier Division champions City of Liverpool FC, having beaten Bacup Borough, Wythenshawe Town, Garstang and Nelson in previous rounds. Joint managers Lee O'Brien and James Hampson will be looking to go one better this season, as we start with a very difficult fixture against Division 1 South Runners-up Vauxhall Motors. Last season the Wirral team went out in the early stages against Premier Division runners-up Bootle, so they will also be looking to go one better. It promises to be a great day as we welcome Vauxhall Motors, one of the big names in non-league football to the Vestacare Stadium.
