Worcester City Third Round Dream

For the first time in their history, Conference North side Worcester city will be in the pot for the third round draw of the FA Cup. Despite needing to win the replay against Scunthorpe at home, the fans who made the journey celebrated as if they won the game. That proves the magic of the cup, lowly Worcester City might not even make it to the third round, but the opportunity of playing some of the Country’s biggest teams was too much of a prospect and something the club and the fans rightfully celebrated with a pitch invasion when the final whistle blew.

Their victory over Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena was by far their most historic day to date and something the club will never forget. Now however, they have a chance to create even more history if they manage to beat League one side Scunthorpe in the second round replay at their adopted home ground in Kidderminster and make it to the third round.

Worcester City have been making football headlines ever since that historic day in Coventry, With former Manchester United school boy, Sean Geddes grabbing the plaudits with his rabona goal scored in the FA Trophy against Barrow along with his very impressive performance in the Coventry match.

Worcester City will be ball number 48 when the third round draw is done and they have the chance to face any of the Premier League or Championship club, something the players, staff and fans will most certainly be looking forward to.

    Worcester have been in the third round draw on at least three occasions. 1978/79 when drawn against West Ham, but we lost the replay to Newport County. 1983 we draw Coventry away and lost 3-1 in the third round. In 1959 we were drawn against Liverpool at home in the 3rd round and beat them 2-1. We lost to Sheffield United in the 4th round. May be others , but enough to show it is not the first time.
