Aug 31, 2012, 12:56 PM
Location: West Yorkshire
Team(s): Bradford City
The FA have confirmed that 131 sides have been accepted in to the Sunday Cup:
Durham FA will be well represented, as they have 8 new entrants!! Although 2 of them (Humbledon Plains Farm Nissan and Witton Park Rose & Crown) have definitely been in it before. Hartlepool Athletic Rovers may also have competed before, under the guise of Hartlepool Athletic Rugby.
There are a number of familiar sides returning to the Sunday Cup; Artois United from Kent (who have a superb website), Cutters Friday (Somerset), Drum (Hull), Enfield Rangers (Waltham SL), Oak Tree Pub (Liverpool) and Pineapple (Liverpool) are all names that I recognise from previous seasons (there maybe more but I'd need to check at home).
I'm glad to see that the following leagues will be represented; Mansfield & District (Bilsthorpe Celtic), Egremont (Cleator Moor & FC Labour), Carlisle (Club Victoria Ath), Great Yarmouth (El Sol & Windmill) Hambleton Combination (Northallerton Police & Sportmans) Grimsby & District (Pattersons) Leatherhead & District (Putney Town) Warley & District (Sporting Khalsa) and Heavy Woollen Gate (St John Fisher OB).
