Young footballers with Cyrille Regis, Ray Stubbs and the FA Cup

Young Alvechurch Lions footballers met Midland goalscoring legend Cyrille Regis, TV sports presenter Ray Stubbs and the FA Cup on the historic turf of Lye Meadow, Alvechurch FC’s ground.

Jordan Rollins, Fraser Anderson, Scott Hancock, Jake Stone, Connor Harris-Pernet, Oliver Howarth, Dan Andrews and Conor Smith were attending a coaching session filmed by satellite channel ESPN, sponsors of the FA Cup.

Alvechurch FC was featured by ESPN because of the club’s proud feat of having won the longest FA Cup tie, against Oxford City, in the 1971-72 competition.
