Read On - Football Fanatic by Steve Skidmore
It's not easy supporting the bottom team in the football league ...
My team, Mudchester United have been drawn against Kingston FC in the FA Cup!
Kingston won the Premier League last year. Their team is stuffed full of famous players from all over the world. This will be the biggest game ever in Mudchester's history.
Alex Beasley is a football fanatic. He dreams that one day his favourite team will play at Wembley in the FA Cup final.
Sadly, this is not likely to happen, because the team he supports is Mudchester United, the worst club in the Football League.
Could this season be different? When Mudchester are drawn against a premiership side in the FA Cup, could they turn out to be this year's giant killers?
