Bulkington to meet Griff or Cabbage in cup-tie; SCHOOLS FOOTBALL.
Dave Formaston's men have been paired with the winners of the ill-fated last eight tie between Stockingford AA and Nuneaton Griff, which has still to be decided after the local derby clash was abandoned earlier this month.
A disappointed Formaston said; ``We've had the rough end of the wedge again. I can't believe our luck in cup competitions this season, we've pulled out quite a few crackers.
The Villagers lost 4-0 to Griff in the Birmingham Junior Cup earlier this month and the possibility of another meeting is a daunting prospect for Formaston.
``No matter the opposition be it Griff or the Cabbage we'll need to be at our best to make the final but I suppose I'm looking forward to it in one way.
``It's going to be one hell of a tough game for us. But you have to accept what you get and I'm sure my lads will be giving it everything.
``When you have the chance at playing in a final at a Premiership ground like Highfield Road then you don't need much more incentive.
``As I've said before it's a really difficult for us but it won't be a walkover either for Griff or Cabbage whoever may progress,'' added Formaston.
In the other half of the draw, Christ the King will tackle either Highway or Handsaker (Edgbaston).
