Peter Ridsdale makes the Cup Draws
PNE boss Peter Ridsdale makes the cup draws with League Chairman Eamonn McNamara
PNE’s Peter Ridsdale took time out from his busy schedule to make the draws for the First round of this season’s Syndicate Trust Challenge Cup and Syndicate Trust Youth Cup. Peter congratulated the League for being awarded Charter Standard status and he sent his best wishes to all our clubs and players for the coming season.
The first round of the Syndicate Trust Challenge Cup will be played to a result on Sunday 17th August 2014. The games will consist of 90 minutes play and if a draw then extra time of 15 minutes each way will be played. Should it still be a draw after the extra time then the tie will be decided by the taking of penalties kicks in accordance with the Laws of the Game.
These games will see the introduction of repeat substitutions in the adult section.
Should a Club not be able to raise a team on this date then they will forfeit the tie and jeopardise their entry in to the President's Cup. Teams losing in the first round of the Challenge Cup will be eligible to play in the Presidents Cup. Premier division teams will enter the competition in round two and will not be eligible to play in the Presidents Cup.
