Retford Town FC update

Congratulations to Retford Town FC of the Doncaster Senior League, on beating Bawtry Town 3-1 on yesterday to reach the final of the Dawson & Burgess Premier Division KO Cup.

Retford Town have also reached the final of the Nottinghamshire Intermediate Cup by virtue of beating Attenborough of the Nottinghamshire Senior League on March 6th in the semi final, the score was 4-3 after extra time.
They will face Gedling Southbank in the final.

The Nottinghamshire Intermediate Cup Final will be played at Kirklington Road, the home of Rainworth Miners Welfare on 20th April 2010.
If you're driving to Rainworth from Retford, set your sat nav to NG21 0JY, or take the A614 southbound from Ollerton roundabout, at the White Post Farm roundabout turn right onto the A617 and frankly, if you can't find the ground from there, you shouldn't be driving in the first place anyway.
