CUP GIVES DAVID HIS SHOT AT GOLIATH
This weekend used to be one of the most eagerly anticipated in the football calendar.
And while some of the magic of the FA Cup has been shed over the years, the third round, with the potential of pitting minnow against giant, still retains a special place for many.

Not least because of the financial rewards smaller clubs can benefit from.
We take a look back at some of the classic FA Cup games involving our local teams over the years – not all from the third round – as a reminder to just how this competition can still leave memories which last forever.
