SLFA Cup 3rd Round Preview.

Well we have 7 Premier teams left from the remaining 16 with only 1 all Premier tie.

Interestingly the top 6 in the Premier League and the leaders in Division 1 and Division 2 are still in.


The tie of the round has the favorites Bentley Vikings at home to Jedi Knights (top v 4th). Home advantage to tell as Bentley win 2-1.

Abysmal Aftermath have picked up recently in the league but have a tough trip to the Div 1 leaders Hundon Harriers. League is probably on both managers minds so could well be a 1-1 draw and the match going to penalties.

Division 2 Ruislip reached last year's final when they were in Div 3. Now they are up to Div 2 and still doing well in the cup. This week a home game against Aberdeen Terrors and a stern test as Aberdeen are 6th. Could be a shock as Ruislip win 1-0.

Doncaster Town are 5th in the Premier League and travel to 3rd Division Par Athletic, who are pushing for promotion. Could be a surprise as it finishes 2-2 and a penalty shootout.

Northern Soul are top of Division 2 and host Chaddesden Celtic, who have gone off the boil in recent weeks. The cup looks Chadd's only way to collect some more silverware and in a tough match Chadd to win 2-1.

Funkademia are 2nd in the Premier League and host York Rovers from Division 1. York don't score many but don't concede many so I think it will be 1-0 to Funk.

There are 2 3rd Division teams left and they have both avoided Premier opposition:

• 2nd placed Inter Southampton are at home to Corinthian Wizards from Division 2. Shock in store as Inter win 2-1.
• Mann City are 8th in Division 3 and are home to Division 1 Armthorpe Rovers. On paper Mann City are the rank outsiders at 250-1 but is the cup..........

Latest Odds

3-1 Bentley Vikings Old Boy
5-1 Funkademia
6-1 Doncaster Town, Aberdeen Terrors
7-1 Jedi Knights
10-1 Chaddesden Celtic
15-1 Abysmal Aftermath, Hundon Harriers
20-1 Armthorpe Rovers
25-1 York Rovers, Northern Soul
30-1 Par Athletic, South Ruislip, Inter Southampton
35-1 Corinthian Wizards
250-1 Mann City
