The BetVictor Isthmian League have revamped the Velocity Trophy for this season, with all clubs at step 4 including ourselves starting in a group before advancing into the knockout stages.
We have been placed in a group with Basildon United, Great Wakering Rovers, Hullbridge Sports, Tilbury and Witham Town. We will play Basildon and Hullbridge at home and will be away to Great Wakering, Tilbury and Witham.
Dates of these fixtures will be announced as soon as they have been agreed. Home matches in this competition will be included for season ticket holders.
If any of the group stage matches finish as a draw, each team will receive a point and the match will go straight to a penalty shootout where the winners will pick up an additional point.
Additionally, each club can name five substitutes, all of which can be used. Premier Division sides will enter after the initial group stages.
