Friday night lights!

Elthamians are in action on Friday night at Sidcup RFC in the quarter-finals of the Kent Cup, kick-off 7.45

Although there are no National League Two South fixtures this weekend due to the Six Nations, there is no break from the action for OEs, who turn their attentions to the Kent Cup.

Gavin Lach's men face local rivals Sidcup at their Crescent Farm ground on Friday night under floodlights with a place in the county semi-finals at stake.

It's a mouthwatering match-up with Elthamians set to name a strong line-up to face a Sidcup side currently lying fourth in London One South.

With a semi-final tie against Westcombe Park the prize for the winners, Elthamians are hoping as many supporters as possible will make the short trip to Sydney Road on Friday night.

This year's Kent Cup final will be played at Aylesford Bulls RFC on May 1st.
