    If you have a core of full time 12 month contracted senior players ( which is where Bohs may be heading to) and a solid bunch of under 19`s with European experience, the calendar won`t be a problem. As long as it doesn`t rain, snow and isn`t windy , we should be fine.

    Didnít know Bohs weíre heading that way, in that scenario participation makes sense.

    Some of the younger talent like Mandroiu are contracted until the end of the 2020 season.I would think that the likes of Talbot Levingson, Finnerty Grant, Mc Court,Leahy ,Kirk, Lyons , maybe Wade Slater, would be the rest of the core full time prospects.
    Bohs must be in a financially healthier position than budgeted for the season.Made a decent operating profit last year and must be making at least 8k more per home match in gate receipts and ancilliary sales than last season.So the money should be there , and the board seem to be strategic enough in how they spend it.

    Board policy is to use any additional resources to sign players for next season but not necessarily on 52 week contracts.
    Reality is that unless dates are changed for Qtr final and semi final (should they get that far) the same problems as last season arise. Presumably the FAI/SFA have sorted any potential issues out to avoid the debacle we had last year.

    Yep. Saw somewhere that Waterford also signed up. I believe Irish teams cannot draw each other in first round but could meet if they get through.

    Rumours say Waterford are the other team invited but nothing confirmed from club yet. I presume the FAI won't change their mind on our eligibility for it this time. Is there much money to be made or is it likely to cost more money to take part?

    You probably qualify as one of the English owned non league teams

    Fortunately for Waterford, it's not a UEFA competition, so there's no danger of UEFA not letting ye in.

    Not much to be made but little travel involved so no losses either. Itís the Scottish League Cup so UEFA restrictions donít apply. 2 highest placed non European qualifiers are invited. Thought I read that Waterford were confirmed but canít recall where.

    Donít think there is any major cash involved. Afaik your expenses get covered for travel & accommodation.

    Need to change the thread title! It's now the Tunnock's Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup. Which must surely be one of the worst names for a competition ever.

    And Waterford will be taking part.
