The FFUK Milk Plate, for those teams knocked out of Round 1 of the FFUK Cup, is gathering pace. The end of the February Gamemonth saw the conclusion of the 4th Round. As the draw takes place in advance we therefore already know our Quarter-Final line-up!
But first things first, here’s how Round 4 played out:
|Round 4 (Completed)|
It was typically a much less tight affair in the Milk Plate compared to the FFUK Cup, with most ties won comfortably. Neil Sutherland squeaked home by five points in the top match, and Matt Frost by eight points in the bottom match, otherwise 20+ point margins were the order of the day. Former FFUK champ Nick Johns moved effortlessly and ominously through – one to watch as we enter the latter stages.

March is a three week Gamemonth, so more of a sprint than a marathon. Managers will need to be wary of the last week in the month, Gameweek 31, which will be a blank Gameweek. As things stand there might not be very many fixtures happening that week at all ….. Good luck to all eight managers still in.
