Hinchingbrooke Cup Final 2018
The Hinchingbrooke Cup Final last year certainly lived up to expectations as two of the ‘United Counties Premier Division’ free-scoring clubs went head-to-head in a bid to claim glory and local bragging rights. Blink, and you’ve missed it; the time has once again arrived whereby the Cup Final is to be held on Monday 21st May 2018.
This year, the match will be played at The Premier Plus Stadium in St Neots, and will see Yaxley FC and Huntingdon Town face off to take home the trophy. The match kicks off at 7:45pm, with spectators welcome.
Established in 1894 ‘The Hinchingbrooke Challenge Cup’ holds an acclaimed heritage and is widely recognised within footballing communities stretching throughout Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire and Leicestershire.
The competition is open to teams competing at steps 5-7 of the national league pyramid system, ensuring a level of competition appropriate to playing abilities and facilities. The tournament is charity based and relies on funding and support from numerous parties.
One of which is local construction business Mick George Ltd who have provided invaluable support and finances for another consecutive year as the main official sponsor of the Hinchingbrooke Cup again in 2018.
Martyn Bacon, Hinchingbrooke Cup Treasurer commented: ‘’We are delighted to have obtained local sponsorship which will help safeguard this prestigious competition for the future. Mick George Ltd have been incredibly active supporting community initiatives especially in the sporting domain and it’s a pleasure to have them on board’’.
Jon Stump, Finance Director of Mick George Ltd: ‘’Throughout the years we have engaged in partnerships with a number of local teams including Eynesbury Rovers, Peterborough Northern Star, Yaxley and Godmanchester Rovers all of which compete within this competition. For that reason, it seemed natural to offer our support to the tournament which predominantly correlates with the geographical locations that we operate’’.
Stump Continued: ‘’The Hinchingbrooke Cup has a strong reputation in the area and we hope that with our assistance this is something that can be sustained and built upon in the future. This is our opportunity to give something back to the local communities that have supported us over the years.’’
