Moors accept invitation to take part in Scottish Challenge Cup

SOLIHULL Moors could be set for a trip north of the border during the 2019/20 campaign, after accepting an invitation to play in the Scottish Challenge Cup.

Tim Flowers’ men will head straight into the third round stage of the competition, following their second-place finish in the National League last season, with fourth-placed Wrexham – the next highest finisher after promoted Salford City – also taking part.

As of the 2018/19 season, clubs from the top tier of the English non-league ladder began to participate in the competition – meaning the Scottish Challenge Cup is now contested by sides from all the UK and Ireland.

Boreham Wood and Sutton United were the inaugural English representatives in the most recent edition, with the former losing on penalties in the second round to Dunfermline Athletic, and the latter being edged by Irish side Bohemians.

The competition plays host to clubs from the Ladbrokes Premiership, League 1 and 2, and the Scottish Highland and Lowland leagues, while two sides from the Welsh Premier League, Northern Ireland Football League, League of Ireland Premier Division and National League are invited to participate.

Moors are set for an exciting weekend on September 7 or 8, when they officially enter the competition, with a tantalising home tie or, better still, a unique away day, awaiting them.
