The 2019-2020 National CP Cup took place on Saturday 23rd November at the University of Northampton.
Five of the National CP League teams entered into the competition all competing for a place at the 2020 FA Disability Cup. The teams did not disappoint in terms of entertainment, starting with the first match between Brighton and Derby which ended 0-0 due the great heroic display of both goals keepers preventing either opposition from scoring.
There were some real close results in other matches through out the competition, including Derby grabbing a 2-1 result over CP North West. Cambridge Community Trust, new to the league this season took part in their first Cup competition. They had recruited a couple of new players through the season so far and were keen to be involved in the event and enjoyed the experience.
In the final round of matches, it was a repeat of the FA Disability final from June, between CP North West and North East & Yorkshire. CP North West needed a win to retain the CP Cup, however it was North East & Yorkshires day, as they managed to maintain a 100% win record throughout the day to claim the 2019-20 National CP Cup and confirm their place at the FA Disability Cup in 2020.
Focus now returns to the next fixture date for the National CP League on Saturday 15th February
