Cups progress - or lack thereof
I was asked at half-time yesterday when was the last season that we played 2 rounds or more in each cup competition we entered. I couldn't answer the question.
Having trawled through my records this afternoon, the answer appears to be 2002-03, when we played 2 rounds in the FA Cup, 3 rounds in the FA Trophy, 5 rounds in the Isthmian League Cup, and 4 rounds in the Middlesex Senior Cup. We didn't enter the London Senior that season - I may be wrong but I think it was intended for clubs of step 4 (Isthmian division 1) or lower.
We also achieved the feat in 2001-02 and 2000-01; I haven't looked back any further than that.
This, therefore, is the 17th successive season in which we have failed to progress in one cup competition or more.
