CHIPPENHAM SUNDAY LEAGUE SUBSIDIARY CUP PREVIEW: No upsets expected
1:30pm Friday 15th February 2013 in Sport
THE Subsidiary Cup enters its second week of the group stage of matches.
In Group A, top flight leaders Biddestone Social face division four frontrunners FC North Wiltshire and it would be a massive upset if Biddestone, who are chasing silverware on four fronts, didn’t kick-off their bid to retain the trophy they won the last time it was staged in 2004 with a comprehensive win.
Premier Division AFC Melksham won’t have everything their own way at Christie Miller where third division leaders Corsham Park Rangers are the visitors for the first of the Group B matches.
Corsham Park have won seven on the bounce and will be looking to take their League form into what should be an entertaining and winnable game for Tim Spear’s in-form side.
Group C gets underway at Awdry Avenue, Melksham where fourth division Pig & Whistle United B entertain third division opponents in Calne-based Talbot FC.
The hosts, who have won just once in seven outings, will no doubt be underdogs but if they could recapture their early season form they could get a draw from a game that Talbot ought to win without getting in top gear.
Group D got underway last weekend with a win for Prestige Bodyworks over Kings Arms (All Cannings).
Next up Jim Wilson’s Kings Arms side are first division Steeple Ashton Rangers and this is now a must win game for Wilson’s men if they want to stay in the competition.
Ashton are expected to take the points but their trip to All Cannings may not yield the win they long for as Cannings could upset the odds.
