THE FA Cup trophy is coming to Wisbech Town Football Club's Fenland Park tomorrow (Friday).
The Fenmen are set to play their last ever FA Cup match at the ground on Saturday when they host Mildenhall Town.
The ground has been sold to Purple Properties Ltd, who plan to build 83 houses on the stadium site, and Wisbech will finish their season playing at Outwell before moving to a new £1.2 million at a site off Lynn Road.
At tomorrow's event, which starts at 5.30pm and is open to the public, Wisbech manager Steve Taylor and his players will pose for pictures with the trophy.

He added: "I had been trying to drum up a bit of publicity about the club and the move from Fenland Park and through a contact I was able to get in touch with the FA and they were only too happy to send down the trophy.
