Established in 1968, The Middlesex FA Sunday Junior Cup is open to team of clubs who play regularly on Sundays and is currently held by BAA Heathrow. This Wednesday both Beesotted FC and The Beehive BHP will battle to have their names etched into the trophy for the very first time.
Beesotted FC was formed in 2002 and currently play in the Chiswick and District Sunday League where they sit second in the Championship Division. Though the club added a league winner’s trophy to their cabinet shortly after forming in 2006, they are yet to claim a cup final winning – losing in all four final appearances between 2006-2017.
After successfully navigating their way to the final this season, Manager Mark Jones, will be hoping for a change in fortunes on Wednesday night and hopes his players will give it their all on the pitch. He said:
‘It means a lot to myself and the players to get to the final. Ahead of the game I’ll be telling the team to go out and get the business done. I want to see sweat, no blood and tears of joy.’
Their opponents on the night, The Beehive BHP, were formed in 2016 and play their football in the Edmonton & District Sunday Football League where they are the current Division 2 holders. They currently sit top of Division 1 and have lost just once this season. With many of their current squad having semi-pro experience, Manager, Steve Livermore is confident ahead of Wednesday’s final.
‘I’m thrilled to reach the final – I knew we could do it. It’s been great to watch the progression of the team since last season and I’ll be making sure that before the match they know that the opposition is beatable if we play to our best.’
