Default Scotch Challenge Cup

I see Boreham Wood and Sutton Utd will be representing the Conference next month in the Scottish Challenge Cup. I must admit, I do like the concept of clubs from Wales, England, Scotland and (all) Ireland competing and drawing the line at the football league makes sense.

From our point of view, in March, it was quite feasible we’d finish in the top 3 or 4; therefore, qualifying for the tournament.

Just a couple of points to clarify; 1) would we have qualified being a Welsh club; 2) would we want it given the games and potential travel.

I’d have embraced it and tried to win it. No doubt others would view it as a hinderance on a similar scale to the FAW Premier Cup, the Setanta Shield or even the FA Trophy. We do have bigger fish to fry but perhaps it might’ve been different and a bit of fun!

What level in Scottish football are the teams at? Surely not all the way up to the Scottish premier?

Premier clubs enter their under-20s, SFL clubs and a couple from Highland/Lowland leagues enter full teams.

You can’t win much. There’s probably more money in the Conference than the Scottish Football League!

Hopefully we never get the chance to play in it!

Is this Scotch Challenge Cup some kind of competition to drink as much of it as you can?

Living on the Scottish border I would love this.

Also think it would add something exciting to the season playing a few teams we would never play in a competitive fixture.

However you have to feel the extra games, and long away games at that, would be an unwanted nuisance and distraction. Especially if you want to win the league. And from an ideal POV have an good run the FA Cup.
