It’s tonight! AFC Sudbury take on Colchester United in the FA Cup First Round
Well, the sold out signs are up! Every single ticket for tonight’s match between AFC Sudbury and Colchester United has gone, so if you haven’t got a ticket and want to watch, can we recommend BBC2? Other TV channels are available, but there’s nothing on them to compare with what you’ll get from our yellows!
The match is so important that even the National Press are giving it many column inches- here’s the article from The Guardian, for example.
The club in its current form have only once reached the First Round, when they fell to Darlington back in 2001. But a Sudbury side have gone further. One of the forerunners of AFC, Sudbury Town, reached the second round of the competition back in 1996-97, when, after defeating Gorleston, Purfleet, Corby Town, and Canvey Island they were drawn to face the might of Brighton & Hove Albion. It took a replay, but it was glory for the yellows.
Can they do it?
