CORNWALL SENIOR CUP Dobwalls AFC vs Millbrook AFC

Millbrook boss Macca Brown has warned his players not to take their eyes off the ‘immediate challenge’ as they prepare to travel to Dobwalls in the Cornwall Senior Cup quarter-final.

The Brook are unbeaten in the Western League premier division since October 16 (nine games) but Saturday’s tie at Lantoom Park (3pm) presents a different sort of test.

Brown: “We are well aware of what we face in the quarter-finals against Dobwalls, who are having a great season themselves and are a very good side.

“That is our only focus as it stands, we know what we want to achieve at the end of the season but if we even think about taking our eyes off the immediate challenge in hand then there will be only one outcome, and it won’t be a good one for us.

“Everyone at Millbrook FC has huge respect for this competition. When we were placed in the East side of the SWPL a few years ago it was a trophy we really wanted to do well in as we weren’t facing any Cornish sides in our regular league campaign.

“We managed to get to the semi-finals when the season was finished early due to covid, so we do feel like we have some unfinished business there.

“As a team we have improved so much in recent seasons and can now have realistic ambitions of winning the Senior Cup, something Millbrook has never done.”

Dobwalls haven’t won the trophy either but they sit fifth in the South West Peninsula League premier division west and are a formidable force on their own ground.

Verdict Millbrook have to be favourites but they will have to match Dobwalls for effort. Falmouth regard their league game at Lantoom Park earlier in the season as one of their toughest tests so far; Millbrook take note.
