Earlier today, the club has recieved confirmation that the scheduled Heavy Woollen Wheatley Cup fixture against Drighlington Juniors Reserves has been cancelled. Littletown will therefore automatically progress to the competitions 2nd round.
To our understanding, the fixture has been forfeited on Drighlington Juniors' end. The e-mail recieved to our account from a Drighlington Representative stated, "based on the strength of our Reserve side and the likely outcome of a heavy defeat [...] it is with regret our Reserve team will have to withdraw from the Wheatley Cup"
This has given us a pass to the competitions second round, but will see the 1st team out of action this weekend. This means that the second team will have the spotlight this weekend as they continue their YAL Division 3 campaign with a home fixture against Shire Academics III.
The match preview for Saturdays second team game will be up on our website by Friday night, as they look to bounce back after a penalty defeat.
