Cup needs cash!

The Non-League Football Paper - - NEWS - CHRIS PAULTON, via email

IT’S great to see the FA are plan­ning to pump more money into the FA Cup, but the only area that needs at­ten­tion is the ear­li­est rounds where the cash can be life-chang­ing.

At the mo­ment, ex­tra pre­lim­i­nary rounds net clubs £1,500 (for the losers). This is nowhere near enough. Take money from the top and in­ject more ro­mance into the cup. Grass­roots foot­ball is what it’s all about
