This evening the draw for the FA Cup third round was made with Bury finding out they will have a home tie against Bradford.

Dreams of FA Cup glory continue for many still involved (and dreams are all it’ll be for some of course) when we move into the New Year, which will see the entry into the competition of ‘the big boys’ as the Premier League and Championship clubs now come into the competition.

Following the draw, made on BBC2, it is now known all that stands between us and a place in the fourth round is a win in this third round tie! Not that it’ll be as straightforward as that of course as this is the FA Cup we’re talking about isn’t it!
