Cup Draw Kicks Off Charity Mission!
The Northern Premier League’s second season proudly supporting The Daniel Wilkinson Foundation kicked off on Friday with the draw for the first round of the 2018-19 Integro League Challenge Cup campaign.
The EVO-STIK League’s showpiece cup competition will see all 62 clubs who went into the hat supporting the charity with adverts and promotional flyers around their grounds and in the matchday programmes of all ties until next April's final.
Founded by the family and friends of the late Shaw Lane defender to raise funds in his name to stop others dying of undetected heart conditions following his tragic death in 2016 after collapsing on the pitch during an Integro League Challenge Cup clash at Brighouse Town, the fundraising foundation has already raised more than £50,000 with the help of the supporters across Non-League and the EVO-STIK League’s generous fans and clubs.
Like 2018 Integro League Challenge Cup winners Atherton Collieries, pictured, and losing finalists Coalville Town, this season's winners and runners-up will once again collect £2000 and £1000 in prize money respectively. Losing quarter-finalists will collect £250 while the losing semi-finalists will bank £500 each as sponsors Integro continue their long-running support for the cup competition.
Extra-time will not played over the course of the 2018-19 competition if the scores are level in any ties after 90 minutes with the results decided on penalties.
