THE FA Cup trophy is in Fenland today.
Wisbech Town Football Club will play their last FA Cup match at Fenland Park on Saturday and to mark the occasion, the trophy is being brought to the stadium today for a photo shoot with the club's players, management, officials and fans.
The 175oz trophy was brought to the Cambs Times office in March on the way to the ground.
We opened up our doors to the public and people had their pictures taken with the famous trophy by our photographer Brian Purdy.
Nick O'Donoghue, from e.on who sponsor the FA Cup, said: "The FA Cup is for everyone from Man Utd to the non-league clubs.
"We thought it's a great story about Wisbech Town FC and were only too happy to bring along the trophy to mark the occasion."
