Town Ball 19 in FA Cup Draw
Monday, 3rd Dec 2018 12:25
Town will be ball number 19 in this evening’s draw for the third round of the FA Cup.
The draw, which will be carried out by Ruud Gullit and Paul Ince, takes place live on BBC1 at 7.30pm. Third round ties will be played between Friday 4th and Monday 7th January.
The Blues’ last victory in the tournament came back in January 2010 when they beat Blackpool 2-1 in the third round at Bloomfield Road during Roy Keane’s time in charge.
Last season Town were beaten 1-0 at home by Sheffield United, their 13th match without a victory in the competition they won for the only time in 1978.

John O’Rourke – Unsung Hero by ElephantintheRoom
Town supporters of a certain age look back rather fondly at Bill McGarry’s promotion team of 1967/68. We may be grey. But our memories are vivid. That team of half a century ago signalled something of a rebirth and laid firm foundations for the many good times that lay ahead.
