FCJ Cup - BEFC vs BFC
Second round of the FCJ Cup, we play division 1 British Football Club. This is our opportunity to challenge a division 1 side and show what we are made of.
This match has a historical theme to it too since BEFC and BFC used to be the same club way back (80s?). When BEFC couldn't continue to get a team out due to personel always changing at the Embassy BFC splintered off and BEFC went into hibernation. BFC have since became a regular strong contender at the top of the TML, and BEFC on the return (as far as I know) mostly bouncing around Division 2 with a brief Division 1 spell. Therefore, for some of the veteran BEFC members a battle with BFC is a rivalry. In fact when Giles Lever, Ambassador to Vietnam, was sending support for us last season he said he was always happy if we could beat BFC!
As our mentality to play as a Division 1 club, we want to get out the players and team we'd be fielding in Division 1 with the effort and drive to go with it.
