The Only Way Is Wembley

26th November 2010: The Only Way is Essex stars Mark Wright and Lucy Mecklenburgh brought football chic to Chelmsford City yesterday in preparation for the club’s 2nd round FA Cup battle with Wycombe Wanderers this Saturday.

Mark Wright, 23, a former Tottenham youth team captain, knows what a battle Wanderers face this weekend having frequently come out on the losing side against City during spells with both Crawley Town and Rushden & Diamonds.

Mark said: This weekend’s clash with Wycombe is like a cup final for Chelmsford. It’s great to see one of my local Essex sides doing so well in this season’s competition and I just hope the boys can pull off a shock. I’d love to see them in the hat for the 3rd round draw on Sunday, it would be a dream to see them take on Scunthorpe United, the team my brother Josh plays for. Come on the Clarets!”

The 2nd Round of The FA Cup kicks off this evening with non-league Crawley Town taking on Swindon Town live on ESPN (KO 7:45). The weekend’s TV coverage continues on Saturday with all the live action from Kingsmeadow as League 2 Stevenage travel to AFC Wimbledon (ITV 1, KO 12:50).

The weekend’s FA Cup action culminates in the 3rd Round draw on Sunday at 6pm (live on ITV 1) with special guests Noel Gallagher, an avid Manchester City fan, and Leicester City supporter Serge from the multi million selling band Kasabian.
