Leatherhead attempt to end 45 years of hurt when we begin our Surrey Senior Cup campaign against Farnham on Wednesday night. Despite 6 finals we have only won this Trophy once. Even Metrogas can claim a better record having won in 1921 and 1922.
This illustrious competition was first won by Reigate Priory in 1883 with a fine 2-1 win over East Sheen. Rod claims to have written the match report (citation needed). The craziest final was undoubtedly in 1903 when Townley Park despatched Sanatorium 4-0 which drove them mad!
Farnham sit 14th, two leagues below us in the Combined Counties. They are managed by Paul Tanner but it was the real Tanners who hit 5 last Saturday at Peacehaven with our best win of the season.
Nudkeji will be hoping to crow again tomorrow night with more goals that would surely seal a regular place in our starting line-up. Let's hope there will be no mention of Micky Mouse after this game!
