The Magic of the Cup

The Magic of the Cup

A board member remarked today how everyone seems to refer to our home match on the 4th February as "Nelson in the cup". He argues this does the match an injustice and we should all be unashamed to call it as it is..."THE QUARTER FINAL OF THE TROPHY"

And you know what he’s right.

Two games from the final, three from our first silverware, c’mon let’s shout it from the rooftops. We might even play Flixton again. Or Winsford.

And don’t forget its free admission for kids. Go out and spread the word.

Other Quarter Finals:

Ashton Town v Flixton
Cheadle Town v Great Harwood Town
Winsford United v Daisy Hill

And while we’re on about the Magic of the Cup, the FA announced the venues for the finals of this seasons FA Trophy and FA Vase. Obviously it doesn’t directly affect FC United this season, but the Trophy final will be at Upton Park and the Vase at St Andrews.

Start dreamin’ folks, start dreamin’.....
