The Romance of The Cup

The smallest club in the FA Cup will take the field this weekend after making the second round for the first time ever, and they are Redbridge from the Ryman League Division One North. They are nothing to do with Dagenham and Redbridge who also happen to be in the draw.

Redbridge who boast the great Jimmy Greaves Grandson as a striker defeated Oxford City.

Many years ago they were known as Ford United, a side based around the car manufacturer, and the result of a 1959 merger between Ford Sports and Briggs Sports. Former Wimbledon striker and now Aldershot Manager Dean Holdsworth started his managerial career with the club.

They will be taking on Division Two side Crawley Town, hoping the dream can continue.
