As a club with a rich history of achievement in the FA Cup, Leatherhead FC is disappointed with the decision to abolish replays in the FA Cup.

We believe this decision detracts from the very essence of the competition and will lead to fewer opportunities for small clubs like ours to raise much needed revenue.

Over the years our club has been involved in many memorable FA Cup replays and we hope this decision is reconsidered to enable us to do so again.
