PREVIEW: SUNDAY AMATEUR CUP FINAL

Football Futures 2013 and Leamington Hibernian Sunday come together in the 2019 Sunday Amateur Cup Final.

An exciting finals season for Birmingham County Football Association continues on Sunday 14 April as Football Futures 2013 take on Leamington Hibernian Sunday for the Sunday Amateur Cup.

The Final, set to be played at the home of the Birmingham County FA, the Walter Goodman Stadium, gets underway at 11.00am.

The tie itself promises to be an extremely exciting affair with both sides aiming to lift the Cup for the first time in their respective histories. Football Futures 2013 have never reached the Final, whilst Leamington Hibernian Sunday hope to ensure that they go one step further than in past seasons, as the two-time Sunday Vase Competition finalists aim to have their name etched onto the Cup.

Both teams’ run to this Final also provides reason for supporters to be optimistic ahead of the clash, with the finalists stringing together particularly eye-catching runs in the competition.

After receiving a bye through to the Second Round, Football Futures 2013 got their campaign off to an emphatic start by plundering nine goals against Punjabi Wolves. They followed that up with another brilliant 8-2 thumping of Hurley Kings Adult to book their place in the Fourth Round. Once there, they swept aside AFC United 3-0, before then notching a 3-1 success against Shire Oak Bears. Their task was slightly less straightforward in the Semi-Finals as they edged past Olton Orient 1-0 to book their clash with Leamington Hibernian Sunday.

The Hibs meanwhile have been in similarly irresistible form. They kicked off with a stunning 8-0 win over Penn Rovers Adults before notching another five against Dudley Ajax. Penalties were required in the Fourth Round against St Johns Rangers, as they squeezed through 8-7 following a 0-0 draw in normal time. Despite not conceding a goal thus far, Leamington were made to sweat in the Quarter-Finals as they played out an entertaining 4-3 win against Welsh Warriors. They eventually secured their place in the Final with a 3-0 victory over Radford Social.

Supporters at the newly-renovated Walter Goodman Stadium will hope that neither side have lost their appetite for goals when it really matters.

Admission is £3 for adults and just £1 for concessions, with each admission including a matchday programme.
