The draw for the Premyaa Leegue Cup haz been made involvin wor U23s and we have been drawn against Bornley, Swanzee and Colchestaa United in group 'D' of the competition
The exxstatic news for the mad-sad groundhoppers iz!---we will have at least 2 new groonds to visit---and possibly 3!
This iz because Bornley are playin their 'home' tie against us at Stockport Coonty's groond for some unknown reason? (Stockport iz quite a hike from Bornley!)--- And wor game away to Colchestaa iz a new groond for us az well!
Add in the fact that Swanzee havvent decided where they are playin the tie against us---then it could be a TREBLE TREAT!
The games are on a home and away basis and the group winners progress to the knockoot stage!
Lookin at the dates the Colchester game away iz 2 days after wor 1st team are due to play Chelski away--and so we could kill '2 birds with 1 stone'---provided they move the Cheski game for live telly to a Sunday!? (Bet they dont!)
