We have today been informed by the Worcestershire FA that following a breach of competition rule 16K that Highgate United have been removed from the competition and will be replaced by Studley FC.
The rule in question is - "A player on temporary (loan) transfer is ineligible to compete in either Competition, unless permission is given by the lending club in writing and a copy is submitted to the Association by 12 noon on the day previous to the date on which the match is to be played. A registered Trainee on a Scholarship for work experience may play for another club, subject to written permission being given by the Club that he is registered to and provided that such permission is received by the Association by 12 noon on the day previous to the date on which the match is played. Any permissions must clearly state that the player has approval to play in the Worcestershire Senior Invitation Urn. The Association will not give permission for players on loan to play against the lending club."
The final takes place on Thursday 11th April 2019, kick off 7.45pm at The Spires & Hartwell Jubilee Stadium, Evesham.
Entry prices for the Final are -
Concessions: £5 (under 17/18 year olds, students and over 65 year year olds)
Under 16s: £1
This final is due to be the last one held for the Senior Urn before the two competitions (Senior Cup and Urn) are merged from next season meaning either Worcester or Studley will be the last Club to lift the trophy.
