THE TURKISH CUP - GROUP STAGE

Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

The draw for the group stage of the Turkish Cup has just been announced a few minutes ago.

Group A - Besik...spit..tas, Ankaraspor, ANKARAGUCU, Rize, and Diskspor.

Group B - Trabzon, GENCLERBIRLIGI, Manisa, Adana Demirspor, and Kirikkale.

There are no `easy` matches in the Cup and the best that can be said is that Ankaragucu and Gencler have avoided the `big two`.

The first matches will be played on Wednesday 31 October. Details of venue and KO times will be given here as an edit when I know them.

A good cup run will be welcome for both sides as they attempt to qualify for YooRo footie next season. Remember last season when Erciyes (now in the 2nd League) qualified for the UEFA Cup ?!

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim

2nd EDIT (21 October) -

A further thought on the matches for the 16th of January.....

With Ankaragucu and Gencler both scheduled for home matches on the same date, it might be an afternoon KO for Gencler and an evening KO for Ankaragucu, or alternatively, they might play either the Ankaragucu or Gencler match on the following day/night, ie, Thursday 17 January. Anyway, as I said before, details will be posted when known.

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim


3rd (and final !) EDIT (22 October) -

Wednesday 31 October KO 1.30pm -

ANKARAGUCU v DISKI (from the 2nd League)

I'll be going to this one (probably on my own ?!). I'll be in The Chopin Bar at about midday and going to the Stadium at about 12.30pm.

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
