Just out of the carrier bag, here’s the ExectalkSports Onagawa Cup making its first public appearance during last night’s George Dobbins League Cup final at Killingworth’s Amberley Park. Sponsored by local fan and FIFA-licensed agent Andrew Watchman – who’s also generously provided funding to advertise the event – the Cup will be awarded to the winning team in the Football Writers versus Northern League Fans game.
Thanks also to Adam Taylor (pictured left) and Ian Kinnon, who not only did the shopping for the Cup but also arranged for Whitley Bay to bring the FA Vase along on July 9th. Both trophies will be on show for photo opportunites. For one of the two teams, it’ll be as close as they get to any kind of silverware.
