    Not sure why they would enter the competition?, Especially as I'm pretty sure all age teams would have to pay the entry fee. Maybe they should look at building a zl3 side before worrying about FFA cup? Gresfords result was at least creditable.
    Yeah not sure why they entered except just to be involved. As far as I know that is there only all age team and itís quite low and they have an O/35ís team with no juniors close to the age to make any attempt of a ZL3 team. So probably just for the experience..

    And a mate of mime from Gresford said they held there own until they ran out of legs as they had one or two training sessions before the game. They were happy with it being close for as long as it was.

    It was a decent effort from gresford, but in reality they still got beaten 8-1. So they must not have held there own for very long.
    I'm sure the Westlakes guys had it slightly different version to the gresfords lads, but a good effort none the less

    Gresford were up 1-0 after 15 minutes with some good build up playing leading to a cutback and good finish.

    After that our goalkeeper got cold for the rest of the evening with Gresford rarely getting down our end. Once the second half came around they could not keep up with our play in the final third which lead to the score blowing out.

    Gresford were constant long ball, were not used to the physicality of zone league which lead to a lot of complaining for fouls which were just solid challenges and got beaten down the wings on both sides many times.

    That being said their keeper made several good saves to keep it out of double figures and their midfield kept possession quite well at times.

    So a very good all age team no doubt and would not look out of place in ZL3 but nowhere near competitive against a ZL2 or ZL1 team.

    This round still has games going into back end of next week + potentially washouts so add a week I guess.

    Yeah we had them in Saturday J grade last year and it looks like they're dropping down to M grade this year. Not sure what experience they're hoping to gain.

    Surely not?? Why go in it if you are going to forfeit? If true, they shouldn't be able to enter next year. You can't pick and choose games.

    Poor form don't bother entering if you're not committed.

    Great suggestion Brem.
    Might have been a possibility if we had notice yesterday.
    Something to consider for organisers should this occur in the future?

    Another related idea: we play Morisset by default.

    Onwards to Rnd 4...

    Clearly the universe does not want cookers playing any games Retro. Just 1 game over the last month when others in NL1 have played 4. 🤔
