2001 was the last time we made a Semi
The First Team play their league cup Semi Final this Sunday. This is the first time the First Team has reached the last-four of a cup competition since 2001. Reserve Team players Chris Jones and Jem Vince played in that Semi Final defeat by Old Newton.
They will face Laxfield who currently sit second in Division 1 having only lost three matches this season. Laxfield beat Portman Rovers (third in the Premier) in the quarter-final. They are also in the final of the Suffolk FA Sunday Shield, facing Leiston Orient.
The Reserve’s have also made a Semi Final, in 2017 when they lost to Raydon Ravens only to be reinstated and faced Laxfield in the Final. Two Laxfield players from that 4-0 win played against Portman Rovers in their last match.
Laxfield goalkeeper Karl Pearce was formerly a Playford player, making six appearances in 1998.
Good Luck to everyone who steps out onto the field for Playford on Sunday.
The match will take place at Gainsborough and will kick off at 10:30
