Soper hoping Cutters can go on another long Premier Cup run
CUTTERS Friday begin their quest to go one better in the Somerset Premier Cup this season when they host Middlezoy Rovers.
Cutters made it all the way to the final of last season's competition, where their dream was ended by Dorset Premier League side Westland Sports – but manager Neil Soper is urging his players to try to go one better this time around.
"The final wasn't the best experience we've ever had," said Soper.
"The build up to the game was pretty exciting, however, and our run to the final managed to keep our season alive right until the very end.

"I'd like it if we could do well in the competition again this season and, perhaps, go one better by winning it this time."
Cutters start with a tricky-looking tie against Division Two (West) side Middlezoy, who were crowned champions of the Taunton & District Saturday League last season.
"We don't know much about them," said Soper. "They won their league last season though, so I'd imagine they'll have a few useful players about them.
"We've had a pretty good start to the season, though, and we're at home, where we're always confident that we can get a good result."
Soper chooses from the same squad that secured a 4-2 win at Ashton & Backwell United last Saturday.
Clevedon United return to action when they host Division Two (East) side Imperial FC.
Stu Henley's side had their game at Ilminster abandoned when drawing 0-0 during the first-half last weekend and assistant boss Joe Rich said: "It was a shame because I felt we were playing well before it was called off."
Clevedon will be without midfielder Nick Lee, who has other commitments.
Nailsea United boss Mark Savage chooses from the same squad that beat Stockwood Green 3-1 last weekend when his side host Keynsham Town Reserves.
Nailsea Town, meanwhile, host Frome Collegians devoid of six key players.
Manager Dave Payne is without defenders Ryan Cook (hamstring), Matt Pilgrim (hamstring) and Dan Boulter (holiday). Strikers Mike Purnell, Liam Knight and Jimal Fisher (work commitments) are also absent.
