Normally the course of many opening day upsets, the first round of the prestigious Crawley Observer Knock-out Cup was held on Wednesday with the following clubs winning through to the second round.
They were: Scrum Jack, Moon Catz, Fairways, JCB, Pelham Jewels, Raiders, Rugby Club, The Inn-Crowd, The Johnson, The Rocketeers, Downsman Dynamites, Barhoppers, OOOooouusshh, White Knight, Happy Slappers and last year’s title holders Special K.
Probably the only surprise result was seeing the Barhoppers beating the Grasshopper team.
Both play out of the Tilgate venue but the Grasshopper have always shown a stronger consistent game, but neither can be given any complacency as they both have a great game.
Having so many strong teams stand the test in round 1, we are likely to see some great battles in the next round which takes place across the town on October 29.
All teams that fall in the first and preliminary rounds are entered into the Windmill Consolation Shield which kicks off on the same day.
