image for Droylsden To Be Reinstated Into FA Cup
Droylsden back in the Cup

In the shock of the FA Cup fifth round so far, non-league Droylsden, who had been thrown out of the competition for fielding an inelligible player, are to be reinstated.

The reason for this, say the FA, is to inject some romance into the Cup, to restore people's faith in the fact that anything can happen, and to liven it up a bit.

Droylsden were originally banished at the third round stage in favour of Chesterfield, who had already lost the tie 2-1. The Spireites then went on to lose to Ipswich who, in turn, lost to Chelsea.

All very dull and boring, I hear you say.

Now though, some creative genius at the FA has come up with a tremendous plan to reinvigorate 'the world's greatest Cup competition', and the Bloods will now take the place of Chelsea in the sixth round in an away game against either Blackburn Rovers or Coventry City, who drew 2-2 at Ewood Park on Saturday.

Droylsden manager Dave Pace said:

"It's nothing more than the lads deserve after putting out Chesterfield. We'll be trying to play football against our opponents, and I promise I won't be fighting on the touchline, whoever it turns out to be."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
