FA Cup - First Round
Salford City 2-0 Notts County
This was the first game played in the FA Cup 2015 last night, live on TV.
Of interest is the fact that a T7 pro-am club like Slaford have beaten a T4 fully professional team like Notts County, a typical early round FA Cup "giant-killing".
However, Salford City FC also featured in a very interesting documentary on the two preceeding nights on BBC:
Class of '92 - Out of Their League - BBC iPlayer
This was made because Salford City FC
are owned by the famous Manchester United Class of '92 of Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, Phil and Gary Neville.
It was a good match to watch and Salford well deserved the win! So, well done to them.
(EPL teams join the FA Cup in round three.)
