The draw for the Supporters Direct tournament, to be held at Enfield Town FC on Sunday 8th July, has taken place and handed WIFC a tough task if they are to qualify for the final. The Internet ‘Orns will face old foes Barnet and West Ham in Group A with the lesser known London Carlisle making up the list, while Dulwich, Cambridge, Stevenage and AFC Wimbledon will contest Group B.
Joint Manager Dave Messenger remained upbeat, citing the tougher group as a good warm-up for Worldnet, which takes place a fortnight later. “We know all about Barnet and West Ham of course, they will be tough games but great preparation for the challenges ahead. It will also be good to meet London Carlisle, a new team for us, and it promises to be a good day”.
Watford and West Ham meet in the opening game at 9am, before back to back games against Barnet and London Carlisle later in the morning. The two group winners go straight to the Final.
