Chichester City, a club even the locals haven’t heard of, have made history by becoming the first football team ever to receive a bye to the FA Cup.
From the brink of going bust, to being on the best and most important FA Cup run in their history. Chichester City, who were playing county league level (tier 9) football last season, have gone further in FA Cup than ever before. A life changing moment for the club, win, lose or draw, the club is on the brink of gaining permanence and stability for years to come.
A fairytale silver lining to the otherwise tragic story of Bury FC’s collapse and expulsion from the Football League, could the magic of the FA Cup propel the club beyond their wildest dreams?
