Trojans ready for defence

Somerset Trojans are the Friendship Trophy defending champions

Somerset Trojans begin their defence of the Friendship Trophy against Boulevard in a preliminary-round match next Sunday, while BAA, the Shield champions, have a quarter-final tie with Wolves on December 18.

Trojans, last year’s 2-1 winners over PHC Zebras, were drawn against Boulevard while the other preliminary-round match will pit Robin Hood against Somerset Eagles. The two double-headers will also involve a pair of Shield matches.

Paget Lions will play X-Roads in one match while Southampton Rangers will face Hamilton Parish. The venues are yet to be confirmed. Quarter-final matches in both competitions will take place next month.

Devonshire Cougars will meet the winners of Hood and Eagles while Dandy Town will play either Boulevard or Trojans.

In the other Friendship matches North Village tackle Devonshire Colts while Flanagan’s Onions play PHC.

In Shield matches on the same date, BAA play Wolves, while St David’s take on Ireland Rangers. Paget or X-Roads meet Young Men’s Social Club and St George’s play the winners of the Rangers against Parish.
