Newark Alliance sides crash out of Nottinghamshire cup competitions





There was disappointment in the county cup as all four Newark Alliance sides crashed out at the semi-final stage.

Having been drawn in separate sides of the draw in the senior cup and trophy competitions, there had been hopes of all-Alliance finals.

In the Nottinghamshire Sunday Senior Challenge Cup, holders Holy Trinity crashed out of the competition with a 4-2 loss at Shire Athletic.
