Elephant Sport Podcast – FA Cup Special
In this edition of the Elephant Sport podcast, reporters Daniel Racheter and Shan Gambling sample the delights of non-league football as they embark on trips to Braintree and Burgess Hill.
Ahead of the final qualifying round of the FA Cup this weekend, Shan has an exclusive interview with ex-Brighton defender and Burgess Hill manager Ian Chapman, who gives us an insight into how important the cup is to club, manager and players.
Daniel visited Braintree Town and spoke to a season ticket holder as the club prepares for their cup match with National League rivals Bromley.
We also look ahead to a few other FA Cup weekend fixtures, in which 32 non-league clubs will proceed to Round One proper. Clubs from the Football Leagues One and Two enter at this stage, meaning potential fixtures against the likes of Portsmouth, Bolton and Charlton to name a few.
