I Stand Corrected

........ Said the man with the orthopaedic boot !! I'm reliably informed by Pete Tideswell, our longest serving member, that our recent match against Cheddleton wasn't our first time of playing in the Open Cup. Back in 2004, when it was known as the 8 Board Cup, we beat Kidsgrove 6.5 - 1.5 in the 1st Round and were then beaten 8 - 0 by Cheddleton in the Semi-Final. In 2005 we were beaten 4.5 - 3.5 in the 1st Round by the now defunct Broughton Arms. In 2006 we were beaten 7 - 1 by Newcastle in the 1st Round. In my defence, this all happened before I joined the club. You can find the score cards for all of these matches in the Archive Section of the Newcastle website.
