Ok, i know this subject was done last year, but just wondered if anyone could offer some info on this cup?

Firstly, if we apply and are rejected, it says a refund in clubs name, but we have a blue tin, not a bank account!!

Secondly, how much do you have to pay the opposition in transport fee?

Thirdly, if you win a game, do you get any prize money?

Basically, i am asking if this is a big drain on club finances? Is it worth playing in?

first - get yourself a bank account! pretty vital for a competition like this, and HSBC do accounts for football clubs

second - transport (from memory) is something like 45p per mile per car or 60p a mile for a coach. this is the only possible pitfall - if a club travels a fair few miles to play you, you will be liable for the costs. however, most 'Midlands' clubs are paired up early on - doubt you will get a Newcastle team or the like

third - prize money is available in every round whether you win or lose. again from memory, think its £250 for round one win, £50 or £100 if you lose.

well worth playing in if your team is solvent, Polska had 4 games in it and all were away - stroke of luck but really helped the finances!

Cheers Mark, will be having a bit of a look at this...not expecting 4 wins, but its something new!!!

Also, because we have only just gone into Div 1, i am guessing we are not likely to be accepted this year? Is it worth us just waiting a year to ensure we get accepted?

it was confined to Premier sides when we were last in it, but I am sure they dropped that a few years later. i don't think it will count against you but you still have to be accepted

What did you do about a pitch Mark? Had a look at the requirements and you need somewhere pretty decent! Horsewell Lane won't do the job for us unfortunately!

Spoken to a few of our boys who were involved, they say its a cracking day out and well worth it...

From what Mark says, it would only cost money in the later stages if a team had to travel to you, but to be fair, if you get to the later stages, you already have money in the bank from it....

We had provisionally booked lutterworth town in case we had been drawn at home. Our first ever away game in birmingham was fantastic - wheeler made his debut for us and scored 2 to put us 2 up at half time. Then they BATTERED us 2nd half - I've never seen us take such a hammering but we managed to win 2-1. It was a cracking day out
