The draw for the 1st Round of the FA Inter-League Cup has been released with the SAL set to face the Bedfordshire League on 7 October. The game will take place at Cranfield United F.C., probably with a 3pm kick-off, but this is to be confirmed.
The SAL first entered the competition in 2007-08 when they achieved a dream start by going all the way to the final where they overcame the Midland Combination in a penalty shoot-out at the Ricoh Arena. The side then represented England at the 2008 UEFA Regions Cup, missing out on goal-difference in a preliminary group in Italy, where they remained unbeaten. The side reached the semi-finals in 2012 and 2016, going down 1-2 to the Isle of Man and 0-1 to the Teesside League respectively.
