Two amateur clubs to play in League One Cup

Amateur clubs West Hull and East Leeds have been selected to play in the inaugural League One Cup in 2015, giving them the chance to test themselves against semi-professional sides in the early part of 2015.

Those two sides will join the likes of Keighley, North Wales and Rochdale in the competition, taking their place in the newly-formed competition, which will act as a precursor to the League One season in general.

It was announced when the league restructure was unveiled that two amateur teams would take part in the competition, joining the 14 League One clubs to make a 16-strong competition. And with the prospect of appearing at the Summer Bash should they get to the final, both East Leeds and West Hull have been announced as the sides taking part.

That final will be the curtain raiser for the Summer Bash, which is hosted for the very first time in 2015. It will be the first game of the weekend, kicking off at 12pm on Saturday 23rd May.
