The Irn-Bru cup - why we need to get promoted asap...

Postby MCB » 05 Jun 2018, 11:11

So we don't end up playing in this farce.

Might even challenge Steve Percy's willingness to travel to every game...

The Irn-Bru Cup will become a complete British and Irish affair after Uefa gave the SPFL approval
to include two teams from England’s Vanarama National League in next season’s knockout competition. Boreham Wood and Sutton United are expected to join the tournament.

Alright, Sligo Rovers on a Tuesday evening to see Barnet's reserves. That's dedication / craziness!

A top National League club ought to win this competition, the Scottish Championship is about mid-table National League standard and the Welsh and Northern Irish leagues are not even that.

No, they’ve been played at the home ground of one of the finalists.

How does this work then ? if we are in this, could we get drawn against Inverness Caledonian Thistle away ? Can't see TK sorting a coach for that one..................

I would only be interested if there was a chance we could play Montrose.
