Where to start?
We’ll start by saying good luck to everyone in the FFUK Cup, you can find the draw for the first round here.
Next we’ll say commiserations to all of those of you that have just got knocked out of the inaugural FFUK Milk Plate Round 1. Unlucky. Among this season’s losers are former champion Jamie Stewart, gamesmaster Ian Galloway, JPC, my Dad, Blakey, both Steve and James Coffen, former Premier League player Jim Whitley, and a whole load of others.
Which brings us to the winners, congratulations and well done. You are among a group of 64 players about to embark on Round 2 of the FFUK Milk Plate and you will find your fixtures on the appropriate page, and also here:

As you can see, there is some real quality throughout. Dan Calabrese is through to play Nick Johns, former league winner, and I foresee that one being a tough ask for Dan. And another thing, Stu Allen is up against Dean Collins, that is a big bloody match if ever there was one. Frankly there are big names up and down this list, so I won’t name all of you, but yes, it could be your year.
I personally have my eye on Don Mac playing in fixture 1, who has his name on a prize this season, but all will be revealed in what is always a riotous month of the season, this December.
As always best of luck to one and all, take care of yourselves, and each ffuker.
