The FA Cup: From Ascot to Wembley, the story begins here…
It all starts on Friday with eight games at clubs like Thrapston Town, Walsham Le Willows and Haringey & Waltham Development and it’ll finish in May at Wembley.
It’s The FA Cup, and all kicks off this weekend.
The Extra Preliminary Round sees 204 ties take place to decide who makes it into the Preliminary Round before the Football League clubs start to enter the fray.
And, for the first time ever, an Extra Preliminary Round game will be streamed live via the Facebook page of FA Cup sponsors Budweiser with Ascot United taking on Wembley FC.
The competition always delivers great stories as small clubs up and down the country get their shot at the big time. Everyone enjoys a giant-killing, unless it’s your team that’s being knocked out.
Trust me, after Gillingham v Dover Athletic last year, Jim and I both know all too well…
