2020-21 Challenge Cup

Recommended Posts

Don't quite know when (or if) the cup is still happening, assuming the cup is still going ahead with invitees, the the teams will be:

All 32 Scottish Clubs plus 12 Colt teams (and Brora and Kelty if it's going from the very start).

Linfield and Coleraine from the NIFL.

Yeovil and Harrogate Town or Notts County from the National League.

Dunno who from the LOI, too confusing to find who.

And as per, TNS and Connahs Quay from the Cymru Premier.

Of everyone, the potential challengers for the cup I think will be, Us, Hearts, Yeovil and Notts County.

Remember that last season's tournament, in which we still have a very healthy interest, is still to be concluded.

The 'Caramel Wafer Cup' will have a very low priority and, if the tournament takes place at all this season, I expect that it will be very much scaled back with only the 30 clubs forming the Championship, First and Second Divisions with the possible addition of Brora Rangers and Kelty Hearts.

Most probably, guess we'll have to wait and see how lockdown goes...

With finances stretched I don't suppose there will be a great appetite for a lot of teams to take part in this lossmaking tournament at present.

I suppose Brora v Yeovil might set a record for the longest trip for a competitive game in the UK.  Unless you make it to the final then this competition is a loss maker.  Personally I rather like it  but I can't see the clubs showing any enthusiasm for this.
