Up for the Cup!
Posted on Oct 18, 2019
Construction Skills People are proud sponsors of Belper Town, a football club steeped in history that was founded way back in 1883.
The club are currently 8th in the Northern Premier League Division One East and play at Christchurch Meadow.
Managed by Grant Black, Belper Town have progressed to the 4th round of the 2019 Emirates FA Cup. Their 2-1 home win over Rushall Olympic was rewarded with an away fixture at Notts County on Saturday 19th October.
“It’s fantastic for the club and for the town. What more can you ask for? It was probably the best draw we could have got. We’re buzzing as a group and it’s a fantastic achievement for the club."
The club has enjoyed success in the FA Vase, reaching the 5th Round twice and also a semi-final appearance in which they lost 2-3 on aggregate to Oxford City, having won the first leg 1-0 at home, in front of nearly 2,000 spectators.
CSP Managing Director Richard Carrington added:
"It’s great to see a young manager doing so well, having played with Grant at Barnsley FC, I know he can take Belper further in the cup. Good luck to the team and all the backroom staff this weekend against Notts County."
