A unique FA Cup experience

18 February 2015

It’s what dreams are made of - lucky Rovers fan Alex France got to spend the night with the FA Cup in his bedroom ... before watching his heroes thrash Stoke City at Ewood Park!

After winning the FA Cup Adventure competition for round five, the France family, from Withnell, were given the coveted trophy for a sleepover.

Alex, 10, was joined at his house by his local football team, Brinscall Village Junior Football Club, before taking the trophy to bed and then having a breakfast of champions, with it beside him on the kitchen table. 

Mum Sharon said: “We had all of Alex’s team-mates round for photographs and we sat and had breakfast with it this morning. It was amazing – a once in a lifetime experience!”
