Klosters will be hoping to land their first piece of cup silverware when they tackle Newlands at Bridlington’s Queensgate on Sunday morning, 11am.

Boss Rhys Howell is under no illusions though, as Newlands will present his side with the sternest of tests in the Kenward Cup final.

Newlands themselves are planning to complete a quick-fire double of cups, as they lifted the Scarborough & District FA’s silverware on Thursday night.

Whatever happens on the day, the tie is sure to be a real cracker and one that could be decided by the finest of margins.

“We have been playing together as a team for eight years and we are yet to win a cup final, so obviously that is what we are going for,” said Howell.

“Newlands are a difficult opposition because they can play football all the way through their side. They are also a very physical and powerful team who put you under tremendous pressure when you are on the ball.

“They are probably the hardest team to come up against in a cup final.

“They will have some good lads out there, we will have to keep an eye on Ben Luntley, Ryan Cooper and a few others.

“We are at full strength though. If we play to our potential then who knows what will happen.”
