Primary Cup Final 2018 Preview
This year’s Norfolk Primary Cup will be contested between Celt Rangers FC and Gayton United Reserves FC at the FDC, Field of Dreams on Friday 13th April (KO 7:30pm).
Celt Rangers are a resilient side, holding the top spot in the Lowestoft and District League. They’ve maintained a near immaculate season record by winning 18 out of their 19 games in the league. During this league season they currently hold a goal difference of 127, in which they have scored 136 and only conceded 9 goals in total.
This dominance has not been as prominent in the cup, possibly due to the fact that two out of their five wins were by walkover. Nonetheless they were able to maintain their form as they cruised past AFC Walpole with a solid 4-1 win in the Semi-Final.
Mid table Gayton Reserves have fought valiantly to reach the final of this year’s Norfolk Primary Cup. Gayton currently hold 8th position in the Anglian Combination League division 4 with a decent season record of 11 wins, 2 draws, and 8 defeats. Similarly to Celt Rangers, two of their wins in the cup were both by walkover. But in contrast to their opponents, Gayton Reserves came out on top with a narrow 1-0 win over Tugas United away from home in the Semi-Final.
Judging by both of the team’s current form it is hard to predict what the final score will be. Gayton Reserves are yet to concede a goal in the cup despite their -2 goal difference in the league, but they’ve shown that they can be a tough team to score against. However it is needless to say that Celt Rangers have displayed their attacking prowess on more than one occasion.
Let’s hope for a fantastic game of football!
