John Savage Cup Final Preview

This seasons John Savage Cup Final will be competed between Firside Athletic under 16's and Attleborough Town under 15's

This seasons John Savage Cup Final will be competed between Firside Athletic under 16’s and Attleborough Town under 15’s. Firside Athletic currently compete in the Norfolk Combined Youth League U16 Premiership and have not lost a league match all season. Attleborough Town have fared differently in the league this season as they have won as many matches as they have lost in the Norfolk Combined Youth League U15 Premiership.

Firside Athletic are no strangers to winning this cup competition as they enter this are defending champions. Firside have only conceded three goals on their way to this year’s final meaning that they concede less than a goal per game. They are also having another good season in the League currently sitting a point behind leaders Taverham in 2nd place but have 3 games in hand. Judging by recent league form, Firside will be confident that they can retain their title. 

Attleborough Town have reached this year’s John Savage Cup Final as an Under 15 team which hasn't been achieved by many teams and have reached back to back finals which is a tremendous achievement. The U16s won the John Savage Cup in 2016 whilst the U15s have had continued success in their age group winning League and Cup competitions over the last few years. This team did reach the Stuart Dracup Cup final last year but lost out to St Andrews by 1 goal to nil. They have already beaten teams of a higher age group in all previous rounds to reach the final, meaning there is no reason they can’t go on to win this year’s John Savage Cup.

Let’s hope for an exciting Final!
