It was nice to see the away fans

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Conference teams don’t get much support
Only die hard fans addicted to the sport
On any other normal Saturday
Not many fans would travel away
But this game wasn’t a league tie
Only one of the two would qualify
For the first round proper of the biggest prize
In football; where big teams play the little guys
Where minnows become giant killers
And every game is a thriller
It was the 4th and final qualifying round
And over 4,000 packed into the ground
With hopes of their team going through
It was a clash of red and blue
The opposite end away fans packed in
And throughout the game made a hell of a din!
They made more noise when they did score
To the lower league club it meant more
Because the FA cup can make a club’s dreams
But can be nightmares for the bigger teams.


This is about Exeter city vs. AFC Wimbledon a couple weeks ago. It was good to see that so many Wimbledon fans travelled down to watch their team,even though they lost 2-1; that’s what i call dedication!
