The Red Imps Community Trust are hugely disappointed and in fact angry at the recent announcement by the FA and EPL that replays will no longer figure as an element in the FA Cup.

The competition in its traditional form has been held dear by fans of all clubs at all levels. Replays have added to its excitement a great deal and brought about very welcome additional income to the more predictable forms of funding that clubs seek.

To have this change enforced without even consultation with club and fans’ organisations is unacceptable.

Also the romance of the FA Cup, an important part of our game, is reduced such that those contemplating investment in smaller clubs may be put off by the apparent and growing trend of power in the industry being held more and more by those at the highest level. We implore those responsible for this decision to admit their mistake and to reconsider for the good of the football pyramid as a whole.
