IT will be “almost impossible” for Newington Reds to win the double this season, their manager has said.
They are already five points clear at the top of the Kenna League, as they attempt to win their first league campaign in 14 years of trying.
“Surviving is a miracle. It’s nice to be there,” the Reds manager said.
“Nobody from Wolverhampton has done it [won the double], so why can we do it? It is almost impossible to achieve everything – that is the truth.”
The closest any Wulfrunian has come to winning both trophies in a season was when the Cowley Casuals manager won the cup in 2014/15, and finished second in the league 22 points behind Sporting Lesbian.
The last Black Country manager to win the league was the Thieving Magpies manager in 2016/17.
“Do you believe we can survive a six-hour Kenna auction drinking lager far stronger than Carling and give a fantastic performance every time? No-one from Wolverhampton can do that,” the Reds manager said.
