Is there any reason the reserves are in the Senior cup this season and not the first team?

Decision made by Setch I assume and rather than put out a team including mainly reserves, with 2 0r 3 first teamers, he would let the reserves have a go on their own. The reserves players were blamed for Lynn being knocked out last season when in fact it was the 1st teamers not trying very hard cost us the game. Very important to beat Downham and hopefully we will have a big crowd to cheer the lads on.

Maybe Setch is looking at bigger prizes and doesnt want to overload his squad with extra games, that In fairness dont mean to much.  I would suggest the Norfolk Senior Cup ranks about the same level as The League KO Cup. 

Also it gives The reserve team players the opportunity  to test themselves aganist higher level oppostion if they progress.  All part of the development.  Then come the end of the season if we were to reach the Semi Final, nothing to stop loading the team full of first teamers and then hopefully giving them a run out at Carrow Road.

For me the only competitions that really matter are league, FA cup and Trophy...........So we can now fully concentrate on just the one target!

Bar open on Saturday BT on from 12 for Watford v Man Utd also four pint jug for the price of three pints, happy days. many thanks to Buster, Setch and Robbie. lets hope that combined with the game being against downham we get a good crowd, the Norfolk Senior Cup may seem small beer for first team supporters but for the reserves this  is a pretty big deal.

As I said on the other thread Rob maybe not big for first team but very important for the reserves.

at Carrow Road ?

As it is the only cup competition we are left in,the only chance we have of any silverware, then it should be a big deal for the club? The bonus for the fans is being played under the reserves banner admission should be no more than 4? An excellent opportunity for Mr Back and his young lads to show how far they have come, and furthermore a chance for many of the regular first team fans to see what good value the reserves offer.

A more perfect stage couldn't be set for the weekend, the family and myself will be there, great news that the main bar will be open.  In my eyes a great local derby and our young lads are more than capable of winning, would be great to break the 200 barrier, and all for just 4. :scarf:  :scarf: :scarf:

That kind of support would be unbelievable but we could do with it as much as possible to cover our expenses would be brilliant  :scarf: :scarf: :cheers: :cheers: :scarf: :scarf: :cup2:

Would be great to see a fantastic crowed today hopefully as the weather should calm down later  :welcome: bar open football on Manu v Watford .
Think that we have to share gate money with downham but with our expenses of ground rent,officials and food and drink costs we need a few people entering to cover that so hopefully grissles we hit the two hundred mark.

Ground Rent ? I thought now it was all one Club. Obviously not.

the reserves have always paid ground rent/match fee from when the committee has taken over after the first season so what is your point Cary as its been mentioned lots of times before ?? We have our own sponsors do our own programs food and pay for officials,drinks etc.

I wrongly assumed that now Setch was general Manager  he would have the club all under one umbrella. How does it work when you have one guy who is General Manager of the whole club but The Reserves are run by a committee and are in affect a tenant at The Walks. Do the u18s all run seperatly ?

The U 18's are part of the club expect the Reserves to be the same next season, 1 step at a time.

As tazz has said  Cary under 18 squad under the club no match fee etc but we are told setchell  wants the reserves under house again from next season.

good to hear that mcl.  lets hope the rumours about the reserves match fees going up this season are just that.

Our fee has gone up slightly this season to last season but not as much as the season before so we have to be thankful for that, but with the added costs of away minibus now we need people through the gate , programe sales, 50/50 tickets match and ball sponsors to help so if you know anybody or can help please come to our games or contact me. By p.m and I will follow it on to the right people.

slightly?  the word on the street was 15%-25%  must be disconcerting to those volunteers involved if it is true.
