"I agree with all regarding the entry fee - but as I mentioned yesterday evening (after those of you who went were already on their way) - the pricing wasn't down to Staines. I have no idea why the Middx FA have brought that rule in! As with David - you all know I think football is overpriced - even at our level."
It's not a new rule - it's been in there for years. The thing is, it is only as football at this level has become more expensive that it has become relevant. I suspect that it was originally brought in during the era when Middlesex Senior Cup ties attracted massive crowds to stop clubs increasing their admission charges but, as is well known, the County Cups are not as important as they were.
Any club hosting a Middlesex Senior Cup tie and wishing to vary their prices should contact the Middlesex FA and ask for permission. Cases will be considered on an individual basis and referred to the relevant people, who might well say yes.
The Association also altered the schedule for this season's Middlesex Senior Cup to eliminate a possible clash with FA Trophy / Vase replays but this has backfired because this round has been scheduled before a round of The FA Trophy. That will be reviewed ahead of next season.
