How it feels the reach a County Cup Final:

Rob Bosworth (Alphington Youth Manager)“We are delighted to be playing in the final of the Devon County Cup and the lads are really looking forward to the match. We’ve had fantastic support from parents, supporters and the club committee members, who are also really excited about the final. It’s been a real team effort on and off the pitch and the final will be a nice way of ending the year - hopefully with a victory, but if not a great evening for all at Alphington Youth FC.”

Kev Morreli (Plymstock Utd Youth Manager) - "This is obviously the first year we can compete in The Devon Cup. At the start of the season it was our main objective and I joked with the boys about it being our European cup. We are very proud to have reached the final considering the standard of teams competing."

What style of play we expect to see:

Rob Bosworth (Alphington Youth Manager)“As we have played a wide range of teams across the wider Devon we have had to adapt our formation on numerous occasions, but one thing that underpins everything is that our lads are empowered to be creative and solve problems themselves. This enables them to play freely in structured systems with pace, energy and intelligence. We have no stand out superstars or egos just great team spirit and commitment.”

Kev Morreli (Plymstock Utd Youth Manager) - "We don’t have a specific style of play, we try to be flexible. Whatever we do we try to do fast."

What it's taken to reach a County Cup Final:

Rob Bosworth (Alphington Youth Manager)“The best thing about the County Cup is the lads get a chance to play teams from North Devon, South Devon and Plymouth. All the teams have had a different approach and style so we have had to adapt in each game. We were really impressed with the welcome and hospitality at Marldon Youth FC in the quarter finals, they were a great club to visit. We have been lucky to play teams from across Devon and had mainly away fixtures which have been a great experience for the lads. We now look forward to an Exeter v Plymouth final!”

Kev Morreli (Plymstock Utd Youth Manager) - "Reaching the final has taken some strong performances against good opposition. Our first game was away to a team unbeaten in quite some time and our last against last seasons winners in our league; there were no easy games. We have had the chance to have some good away days and play new and unknown opposition."
