The Lakoselkac cup was drawn today at FFT head quarters with some interesting games. The qualification stage will take place on the 8th 9th and 10th of March. With there being an uneven number to qualify this has allowed a club to pass through to the final 16 with a pass. Burnie United are the lucky club to get the pass but are not so lucky with who they meet in the final 16.
Here is the qualification games.
University v New Town Eagles
Clarence v Riverside Olyimpic
Nelson e/s v Prospect Knights
Burnie united pass.
One would think that all NPL clubs should make it through to the final 16. The hardest match will be for Riverside who have to take on Clarence who have picked up a few good players and they welcome back super striker Paul Bremner.
The final 16 has some cracker of matches involving clubs on the North/North West coast. Devonport host Ulverstone in which might be an imotional match with three ex Ulverstone boys to line up against the Reds, also Dallas Baldock has been training with the Strikers as well.
Somerset finally get to test them selves against a V League team when they travel to Mitsubishi Park and take on Launceston City. With City picking up some imports as well as a few local lads this will be a cracker and will allow Somerset to see where they are really at.
With Burnie United getting the pass they will then meet the so called yard stick in the V League having to travel south and play on the artificial turf. It just may be a long trip home for a young United squad.
The only other game that is a definite involving clubs North of Cambell Town are the Rangers who will host other V League team Olyimpia Warriors.
