Recently, Lydford Foxes joined 52 established teams in the draw for the first round of the Devon U13 Boys Cup. The draw took place at the Devon FA’s headquarters in Newton Abbot and was broadcast live on Facebook. Sadly, the stream died before the Foxes were drawn to play at home against Moors Youth U13 Hawks of Tiverton.
That said, we did get a mention on the subsequent video. No pressure, then?!
Hats off to the Devon FA for broadcasting the draw live on the internet. Suddenly, this all seems very real for our fledgling club!
We’re hoping to play the game in Lydford on Saturday 9th September, but will confirm this in due course. This will probably be our first competitive fixture, as we’re still awaiting confirmation of our league fixtures.
