Willand Rovers’ under 18s hope to resume their season with the much awaited Devon County Cup Quarter-final clash with Apollo at Silver Street, this Sunday, December 7th – kick-off 2pm. The draw was made the day after the teams thrilling win over Tiverton Town in the previous round, on November 3rd. Since then a series of waterlogged pitches and a lack of fixtures have frustrated the team as they looked to at least get one competitive game in before the big clash.
Apollo always provide tough opponents and when the teams last met in a league fixture at Silver Street, the White Ravens had to come from a goal behind to seal their first ever win over them, thanks to a goal in each half from Jordan Bastin.
Willand should have a full squad to choose from, although many will be in match action the day before too.
