Clapton CFC drawn away at Sporting Hackney in Alec Smith Premier Cup

Clapton CFC men’s first team have been drawn away to Sporting Hackney in the first round of the Alec Smith Premier Cup.

This is the league cup competition for teams in our league, the Middlesex County Football League Premier Division.

The East London derby is due to take place on the weekend of October 2 at Sporting Hackney’s new home ground, a groundshare at Barking FC’s Mayesbrook Park.

The winners will take on Larkspur Rovers or PFC Victoria London at home in the quarter-final and another home draw in the semi-final.

The competition did not run last season due to Covid-19 restrictions.

In 2019/20, the Tons lost on penalties against London Samurai Rovers in the semi-final after beating Hillngdon and Stonewall on the way.

In the league cup we played in 2018/19, the Jim Rogers Presidents Cup, we ended up winning on penalties against Hilltop.
