THE TURKISH CUP – 5th ROUND





Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

The draw for the 5th Round of the Turkish Cup was made yesterday, and a mouth watering tie for Ankaragucu, especially if you have a few free weekday days to travel south to the magical Aegean Sea !

Bodrumspor  v  ANKARAGUCU

GENCLERBIRLIGI  v  Hatay

It is not clear yet of the exact dates of the ties, but what is known is that half of the ties will take place on 4, 5 and 6 December, with the remainder taking place on 18, 19 and 20 December.    I’ll post exact dates here when known.

A win for both teams would see them into the last 16 where they will be up against stronger opposition, but that’s the name of the game in Cup footie.    What we can hope for is a home tie in the next round and to go as far as possible in the Competition, which is not only good for the players and Club, but for the supporters to hope for a chance of celebrating winning some silverware !!

Bring it on.     However, firstly, we have to take care of Beshiktrash tonight and keep the Ankaragucu show on the road.     Genclerbirligi is playing away against Istanbulspor this afternoon.

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
