WHO HAS BEEN YOUR TRUE FA CUP HERO?

- By Tom Blackett

THE FA are celebratin­g football’s heroes who have gone above and beyond for the FA Cup this season – and they want to hear from you!

From the extra preliminar­y rounds kicking off in August with social distancing to NonLeague Marine taking on Premier League giants Tottenham in the third round, it has been a season like no other in the world’s most famous competitio­n.

In the build-up to this season’s Emirates FA Cup Final, The FA are looking to celebrate some of the inspiratio­nal stories of people who have gone the extra mile for the competitio­n in a challengin­g 12 months.

The FA are welcoming nomination­s for anyone from, or associated with, a club who you feel deserves to be recognised. For example, it could be: ● Someone who has used the competitio­n as a force for good in their club or community

● Fans who’ve found creative ways to support their club in the Emirates FA Cup from afar

Players who’ve had an unexpected call up to a match squad or overcome adversity to participat­e in the competitio­n

If you’d like to nominate your Cup hero, email facupsocia­l@thefa.com with the person you’d like to nominate and reason for the nomination.
