City at Wembley

Post by county exile on Sat May 12, 2018 8:40 am

I see we will both be represented at the FA cup final this year:-

The traditional FA Cup Final hymn Abide with Me will be led by representatives from thirteen clubs across the football pyramid on Saturday 19 May. A number of clubs were invited following their exploits in contributing to a memorable season in The Emirates FA Cup.

In addition to Newport County, the clubs who accepted the invitation to take part are; AC London, Bath City, Chelsea, Coventry City, Fleetwood Town, Framlingham Town, Hereford, Litherland REMYCA, Manchester United, Notts County, Truro City and Wigan Athletic.

Sporting their club colours, the individuals from the clubs will form the ’For All’ choir and take centre stage on the pitch before kick-off alongside four vocalists from the RAF.

Newport County AFC will be represented by Sean Edwards who jumped to FA Cup fame when he wrote a poem entitled "A Cup Run For All" ahead of Newport County AFC's clash with Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur. The FA filmed the poem with lines read by County players, backroom staff and manager as well as local Newportonians and one of South Wales' most famous sons, Michael Sheen.

Sean has been a County fan since the 1970s and will be representing County in the choir. Make sure you look out for his Amber Shirt alongside the other 13 Supporters in the choir ahead of the FA Cup Final between Chelsea and Manchester United.

Andy Ambler, The FA’s Head of Professional Game Relations said: “The singing of ‘Abide with Me’ remains one of the iconic moments on Cup Final day and we wanted to use this moment to recognise clubs across the football pyramid who have made it such a special season in The Emirates FA Cup. We are grateful to the clubs who selected such deserving representatives and wish them a very special day.”

I knew that we would be properly rewarded for that 'memorable' victory over Knaphill! So who is representing us?

Surely, it should be Sir Roy D Hacksaw of this parish? I assume he will be back from Eurovision by then?

To be fair, I think most of the people named above could have scored a hat trick against Knaphill!

Might have been an idea to either try to raise a few quid for the club through this (e.g. auction the spot), or use it to build on links with the local community e.g. a competition amongst schools

Probably not enough time to organise either, but just a thought.

And  Shawn McCoulsky will be one of the 137 goal scorers' names appearing on the match day ball at the final.

Sat in the stands. Club not represented pre-match at all. Shame we couldn't have given the opportunity to the young supporter of the season or another young fan that would have had an experience of a lifetime rather than someone that seemingly wasted it.

Can only assume that as the club had released him he didn’t feel any loyalty to represent them and just settled for a free seat at the game.

A tweet from Jack Compton suggested he was going as Nat's guest just to complete the ex-City representation.
