Its Albion v Gresley!
Story courtesy of
Burton Albion and Gresley Rovers are set for a blockbusting cup showdown in the new season.
The Brewers and their arch-rivals from South Derbyshire came out of the hat together when the draw for the Barclays Cup was made at the Beazer Homes League’s annual meeting in Bournemouth.

Albion will have home advantage in the opening leg of a first round head-to-head that is bound to be a real money-spinner for both clubs.

Jubilant Rovers’ boss Steve Dolby said today: “It’s the draw we wanted in our first season in the competition. It’s going to mean two big games and two big crowds.”

Albion boss Brian Kenning was also pleased with the draw, though he admitted it could have pitfalls for the Brewers.

He said: “It’s going to create a lot of interest for local football fans, but it is going to be a very difficult tie from our point of view. As a Premier Division side against one just promoted from the West Midlands League we’ll be expected to win, but football doesn’t always follow the predictable course.”

Albion and Rovers are already due to meet in the Johnson Cup at the Moat Ground on August 11th.
