Walsall FC - Cup Final

I’ve heard Chasetown have been kicked out of the Staffs Senior Cup for fielding an eligible player in the semi final against us.
If true does this mean we reach the final we’ve sacked MF and Matt Saddler has us in a cup final, not quiet Wembley though.

Walsall were kicked out for fielding several pretending to be football players

Have we finally bottomed out and are on the up if we win this?

Didn’t we play Chasetown because Tividale fielded an ineligible player against us previously? Lost both matches, but end up in a final (albeit Staffs Senior Cup) but a final non the less.

Good chance to put Rushall in their box and win a cup

More likely we’ll lose then those fans who’ve already jumped ship to Rushall will be saying “I told you so!” even more. :man_facepalming:

:musical_note: Senior Cup Winners without winning a game since the group stages, you’ll never sing that :notes:

No disrespect to Tividale or Chasetown but if our youth team can’t beat them the chances of beating a full strength Rushall team are slight.

This cup is a seriously big event…in 1881

I’ve heard Rushall are planning to field an ineligible player…

It is the Walsall Senior Cup (a Staffordshire FA competition) from which Chasetown have been expelled. They have admitted fielding a cup-tied player in both the quarter-final (v. Heath Hayes) and semi-final (v. Walsall - who had themselves been granted a walk-over when Tividale committed the same offence!). The fairest solution would be for Walsall to play Heath Hayes in a rapidly organised semi-final. The winners would then play Rushall Olympic in the Final at Burton Albion’s Pirelli Stadium on May 9th.

Will we be selling a large framed photograph of the occasion in the club shop to commemorate the day?

Lol, Sam Manton to score the winner.

That’s what’s happening this very evening - https://twitter.com/WFCOfficial/status/1650795534230380545?s=20

BTW If we lose, could this be the first time a team has been knocked out of the same cup 3 times? :joy:
