Solihull Editorial 3rd Mar, 2023   0

KNOWLE host divisional rivals Kenilworth Sporting this weekend in the quarter-finals of the Les James Challenge Cup.

The Robins continued their fine form with victory against Redditch Borough last weekend as Knowle extended their winning run to nine matches.

Knowle sit third in the Midland Football League Division Two table, two places and six points above Kenilworth in the standings.

Sporting have lost just two league games all season and thrashed Knowle’s rivals Earlswood Town 5-0 to reach the last eight of the Challenge Cup.

Kenilworth are unbeaten in their last nine matches in all competitions and drew 2-2 with Knowle earlier this season.

The Robins will be without Nathan Corry through injury whilst Lewis Rainey and Dylon Bennett both both face late fitness tests.

Knowle’s joint manager Clive Seeley said: “Kenilworth are a good side who know their way around the football pitch. It will not be easy, but with two good side on display it will be worthwhile watching.”

The clubhouse at the Draintech Community Ground will be open for hot and cold drinks and light snacks all afternoon.

Entrance is £4 for adults and £2 for concessions.

Knowle’s clash with Kenilworth takes place on Saturday, March 4 with kick-off at 3pm at the Draintech Community Ground.
