Cavendish taking nothing for granted

CAVENDISH are taking nothing for granted in their Suffolk Primary Cup Final.

CAVENDISH manager Liam Cawtheray is taking nothing for granted in their McDonald’s Suffolk Primary Cup Final.

The Dish Men, who play in Division Two of the Essex & Suffolk Border League, face Macron SIL Division Three side Redgrave Rangers in the final at Colchester United FC on Tuesday, kick-off 7.30pm.




Although they have had a mixed season in the league, Cavendish have had an impressive run to the final, but Cawtheray doesn’t consider his side to be favourites.

He said: “Absolutely not. We take nothing for granted and I’m pretty sure the level is they play at is much the same as the Border League that we play in.

“If we don't turn up on the night, we will get beat, simple as. I'm sure the opposition will be saying the same.”

Cawtheray admitted that Cavendish have saved some of their best performances this season for this cup competition.

“You could say that! The better the opposition the better we play, which is a good thing for a cup run. We've been wanting to get here since the start of the season, so fingers crossed we get the job done on the night! I really don't want to jinx it, but we are capable of a goal or two,” he said.

Cawtheray said he didn’t know too much about their SIL opponents.

“To be honest not much, I don't really tend to do much research on the opposition, I’m more concerned with how we set up and attack teams,” he said.

It will be Cavendish’s third appearance in the final of this competition but first since the 1984-85 season, and Cawtheray said the club were looking forward to the occasion.

“Just being able to play in a stadium in front of all our friends and family, it will be a great night. I never made it to a final in the Senior Cup back when I was playing, so I will certainly make the most of the night!”
