Thank you for all the communications this week around the League Cup 1st round matches - due to take place this Saturday April 22nd.
We have had 13 matches moved to April 29th due to both pitch and availability (Eid) issues. Although the deadline has passed now for matches to move because of availability - with potentially more wet weather forecast there may be further changes. Please do keep in touch, remember that umpires and officials also need to know about any changes to matches.

If something doesn’t look correct please let me know.
Round 2 - following the matches that can be played on Saturday, depending on the amount of results the league is likely to redraw round 2 - so that clubs who do play this Saturday are able to have a round 2 match on the 29th. We will update on Sunday.
As mentioned last Sunday if future matches might be an issue for clubs, especially with later rounds being played on Sundays, if a club needs to withdraw from the competition then they can without penalty (as long as they do so well in advance).
As ever if any questions please let me know.
