Hutton player manager Daniel Till has said their Vardon Cup final against Weston will be a “tough challenge.”

Hutton reached the final after battling Axbridge Town to a 0-0 draw before beating them 4-3 on penalties.

Having stayed undefeated all season and through to the final of the League's Atwell Memorial Shield, Weston Town are on course for the treble and Till knows how hard Saturday's game will be.

"It's going to be a tough challenge," he said.

"Our lads are very young whereas they have high level players.

"We've got enough experience but the team we are playing should be playing at a much higher level.

"You'd expect them to be in the cup final, they are one of the best teams in the Weston & District league."

A successful season has seen Hutton finish third in the fourth division guaranteeing them a place in the third Division next year and prompting Till to look forward to teh cup final.

"We're really excited," he said. "To reach a cup final in the newly created team's season is a great achievement.

"It would be amazing to win, we could potentially do it, just depends on how we play on the day.

"We will just take it in our stride, look forward to playing, no expectation to win just go out and do their best."

Till told Weston Mercury his hopes and aspirations are for next season.

"Build the team and bring more younger players up through the ranks," he said.

"The sole purpose of creating the third team we've got is to encourage players post 16 to move into men's football from the junior selection of the club."

When asked about if they expected promotion, he added: "No. We were expecting to hold our own and build a squad for years to come."

Hutton A will take on Weston Town at 3:30pm at the Burnham Road Playing Fields for the Vardon Cup.
