I'm a bit concerned that there are people who are thinking about this with anything other than abject horror.

How about cost ?
Coach travel for a whole team and hangers on ?
Far flung Scotland or even Ireland - overnight stay - hotel accommodation ? the bill is mounting up, who pays for it ?

And if we're not arsed about going out in the first round why agree to enter it ?


If we enter and progress I suspect being a cup competition it will be treated the same way as the FA Trophy - our league fixtures could come second and suffer massive disruption - they would have to in order for the cup competition to progress smoothly and not hold up ties / rounds.

I suppose you need to look at Boreham Wood. Playoff finalists to 20th in the league this season. Of course, it’s not all down to the SCC but a contributing factor, no doubt. Sutton Utd, too.

I'm presuming this 'competition' is by invite only, if so, as a club that wants to get promoted I'm presuming that we will do the right thing and turn this down. Thanks, but no thanks.

Borehamwood played 1 game in the competition and Sutton United played twice to say the competition was a contributing factor to their final National League positions is a bit ridiculous in my opinion.

Everything I can see about it makes reference to National League accepting the invite so I am not sure he we can say no.

Both of these teams rely on young loan players from Premier League and Championship clubs in the south so they never have the same teams from season to season. Also if any of there own players are any good they get snapped up by teams in higher divisions.

This thread is beyond depressing. We have fans who want to be involved in this? Really?

The trophy didn’t really halt either Orient or Flyde’s progress....
