FA Cup 2021/22 – 1st Rd ‘Proper’ tie-by-tie preview

The 150th anniversary of the FA Cup continues on Friday 5th November with the 1st Round ‘Proper’, and over that weekend 80 clubs, from Level 3 to Level 8 in the football pyramid, will battle it out for a place in the 2nd Round and be one game away from a potential meeting with a Premier league side.

To commemorate this anniversary my highly praised ‘FA Cup 150’ book provides facts and stats and Top 150 lists for the first 150 years of the FA Cup and can be ordered from this link: https://facupfactfile.co.uk/shop or from Amazon.
