The Magic of The Cup!

The FA Cup

The first proper round of the FA Cup kicked off this weekend and once again I caught Cup fever! I only managed to catch today's match between Northwich Victoria and Charlton. It was a typical FA Cup match with the underdogs overcoming the bigger side and producing a really fantastic performance.

Northwich put in a performance to be proud of and deserve their place in the second round. Teenage substitute, Wayne Riley scored the decisive goal and that will surely be a moment he'll remember for all of his career.

Another Cup upset was Staines Town beating League Two Shrewsbury, whilst local side to me Eastleigh, making their debut in this round of the competition, lost to an injury time goal against Barrow.

The Cup is something that brings all football fans together and the thought of more giant killings is something I look forward to, especially when the Premier League teams come in and Saints beat Arsenal 5-0 at the Emirates!!
