We kicked off our League Cup group campaign last night with a tough game away to our local rivals Chester Le Street.

The point of the group stages is to fetch more income into the clubs, A gate of 107 was probably the least to watch a Chester v Birtley game in a long while tbh.
After this game, the next game it may be lower, mundane to say the least there was little to get excited about which sometimes happens in Derby fixtures. A draw would have been just about the right result with the first half going mainly the way of Chester who took an early first half lead. The second half i thought we were slightly the better side and deservedly levelled through an Ollie Leadham free kick. Typically in a game like this it was settled with an own goal from the unlucky Tom Soutar who to be fair knew little about it but its Chester who take the points to jointly lead Group H with Hebburn Town who won by the same scoreline v Whitley Bay.

Much better performance following Saturdays horror show at West End.

Next up its back to League action when Division 2 newcomers Carlisle City come to Birtley for what will be a very difficult game. A team very much in form with 4 wins off the belt until last weeks 2-1 reverse at home to Jarrow. Hopefully some better news on the injury front to boost the squad.

Report will appear below.

No I in Team
C'mon the hoops....
