Back in the early sixties the FA Cup Final was the only live football match shown on television.

The annual May showpiece attracted millions of viewers in addition to the 100,000 spectators packed into the old Wembley.

The whole family would sit round the black and white ‘box’ and strain their eyes to see the action on the 12 inch screen.

The most famous cup competition in the world is full of romance and heartache.

That’s why we love it.

The famous ‘White Horse’ clearing the pitch in the 1920s, the Matthews’ Final, Bert Trautman playing on with a broken neck and Booby Moore playing against his old club for Fulham.

There are countless memories.

Lincoln has the opportunity of adding to the cup romance this weekend as both the Imps and Whites are in action at home.

Lincoln City boss Danny Cowley told SportsLinc earlier: “We can put the challenge of the League to one side and focus on the Cup.

“You take a step on a journey where you are never far away from the dream.

“The league form of teams goes right out of the window.

“We know we will have to be right on top of our game against Guiseley on Saturday.”
