Dockerty Cup Final Heading To Jack Edwards Reserve
Heidelberg United to play Bentleigh Greens in the 2018 Dockerty Cup Final
The 2018 Dockerty Cup Final, proudly presented by Mitre, will be played at Jack Edwards Reserve between Heidelberg United and Bentleigh Greens.
The re-match of the 2017 decider, an epic won on penalties by Heidelberg, will kick off at 7:30pm on Tuesday July 10.
Both clubs have won the trophy once in their histories, with Bentleigh's sole triumph coming in 2016.
Heidelberg United advanced to the final with a 2-0 win against Northcote City in the semi-final round, while Bentleigh were emphatic 5-1 winners against Port Melbourne Sharks.
There will be a raised national level of interest in the match with both clubs qualified to play in the FFA Cup Round of 32, with Bentleigh Greens drawing Hyundai A-League outfit Wellington Phoenix and Heidelberg set to play Northern NSW opponent Charlestown City Blues.
First contested in 1909, the Dockerty Cup is Victoria's most storied trophy. Read more in this article by football historian Roy Hay.
