Woking v Carshalton Athletic
Surrey Senior Cup Semi-Final
7.45pm on Tuesday 6 March 2012

On Tuesday evening the Cards will be bidding to reach the final of the Surrey Senior Cup, a competition which they last won as long ago as the 2003-04 season. Ryman Premier side Carshalton Athletic stand in their way. Come along to Kingfield and support Garry Hill’s side.

WOKING

Progress so far in the Surrey Senior Cup has seen the Cards secure a 2-0 home win over Merstham, a 3-0 away win at Ash United and a 1-0 home defeat of Ashford Town (Middx). The winner of Tuesday night’s game will play either Corinthian Casuals or Sutton United in the final.

Garry Hill will no doubt hope that Tuesday’s game will help his squad play themselves back into some form after Saturday’s very disappointing 2-0 home defeat at the hands of Maidenhead United. The Cards’ strikers in particular could do with regaining some confidence in front of goal after a succession of missed chances. Kevin Betsy is ineligible under the rules of the competition, having been signed too recently, but Jack King’s three-match suspension doesn’t kick in till next Saturday’s game against Havant and Waterlooville and Mike Cestor is available, having completed his one-match suspension.

The County Cup is, unfortunately, a shadow of the competition in years gone by but this year prize money is being made available for the first time, with £2k going to the winners and £1k to the runners-up.

CARSHALTON ATHLETIC

The Robins, managed by Paul Dipre, sit in 14th place in the Ryman Premier League, having won 11 games, drawn 7 and lost 13. On Saturday they lost 1-0 at home to Kingstonian.

Their progress to date in the Surrey Senior Cup has seen them beat Raynes Park Vale 5-1 at home, defeat Whyteleafe 1-0 away and then overcome Metropolitan Police 4-1 at home.

The Robins have done well in other cup competitions this season, the highlight being their defeat of Lincoln City in the FA Trophy.

Carshalton have some familiar non-League names in their squad, including strikers Paul Vines and Dean McDonald, midfielders Tom Davis and Luke Pigden and winger Tony Finn, although the last-named has missed the last couple of games with an injury. Centre-back Justyn Roberts is suspended. Ex-Card Michael Kamara is also in the Robins’ squad.
