A huge part of the historic competition is the opportunity for grassroots, Non-League and EFL Clubs to create dreams that the FA Cup is all about.

The financial opportunities are potentially the lifeblood of over 700 teams that enter the competition and not the 20 odd Clubs that seem to have massively influenced this decision.

To suspend Replays when the Premier League Clubs haven’t even come into the competition seems even more bizarre.

We urge The FA to suspend this decision until all stakeholders are properly consulted and after that, we are sure the decision will have to be reversed.
