Some of our local football teams are still dreaming of glory, while for others, it’s despair as the county’s ‘Champions League’ tournament reaches the knockout stages.
Witchford 96 and Cottenham United confirmed their spots in the Senior Cup quarter-finals on Saturday, while Stretham sealed their passage to the last eight of the Intermediate Cup.
Witchford were 1-0 winners at Soham Town Rangers Reserves as Cottenham beat Fulbourn Institute 5-0, while there were defeats for Isleham, Burwell Tigers, Soham United and Guyhirn.
There were lower spirits in the Junior Cup, however, as all of our teams lost at the last 16 stage.
AFC Christchurch lost 3-1 to Hartford Rangers and Fen Tigers Engineers were thrashed at Brampton Reserves, while there were away defeats for Witchford 96 Reserves and Lt Downham & Pymoor Swifts.
