Yeovil Town will host their glamour tie against the mighty Manchester United, in the 3rd round of the oldest cup competition in world football, on Sunday 4th January 2015.
Their first encounter was in the 1937-38 season. It was the FA Cup 3rd round, and the match was held at Old Trafford on the 8th of January.
Man Utd ran out 3-0 winners in the match, with goals from Bamford, Pearson and Baird. Played out in front of a crowd of 49,004
A decade later the two teams met again. On the 12th of February in the 1948-49 season. United were the holders of the cup as they had beaten Blackpool the previous season 4-2 at Wembley.
The United team that day was: Crompton, Carey, Aston, Cockburn, Chilton, McGlen, Delaney, Pearson, Burke, Rowley and Mitten.
How times have changed from those days.
I sincerely hope that Yeovil Town enjoy their day in the spotlight, but not too much of course. I am expecting a comfortable win, and for United to go on a long cup run all the way to Wembley.
