KGJ Insurance County Cup 2nd Semi Final Preview
The 2nd Semi Final of the KGJ Insurance County Cup takes place tonight at Old Shrewsbury between Sir John Bayley and Ifton with both teams looking to join Newport in the final on Saturday 11th August. Ifton were finalists last year, shocking Newport in the Semi Final, and will look to do so again in Shrewsbury. Captain Dickie Jones comments "we are looking forward to the game, our form has improved the last 6 weeks. They're a top team with a lot of good players so we will need a good performance if we are going to make the final again." Ifton also beat the Bayley on their run to the final at the last 16 stage, but with that being on the much smaller green of Hadnall, will hope for a much better time on a bigger green. Joint skipper Scott Simpson says "it's the Semi Final of the cup and nobody wants to go out at this stage meaning every shot is vital. We know Ifton lost in the final last year and this will be a big test to see how far we have come since our defeat in 2017. We are looking forward to it though so it should be a real good game." The game starts at 6.30 at Old Shrewsbury, with dress code applying and players having to have played at least 6 league games in a league or leagues affiliated to SCGBA. There should be some live scores tonight, maybe not from the start, but will post on here if there are some.
