FA Cup First Round – The Press

It’s FA Cup First Round day, and I am, to be frank, disproportionately excited at the prospect of this afternoon’s match between Eastbourne Borough and Weymouth. The local paper down here, The Argus, has really gone to town on its coverage of it all, primarily because, for the first time, Sussex has four clubs (Brighton…

You can probably guess how excited I am about the First Round of the FA Cup, which is coming up this weekend. In spite of there being no teams competing in it in which I have a particular interest and the somewhat disappointing draw (most of the non-league sides seem to have been drawn against…
