The trophy was also taken to Greenhous for pictures with their staff, Little Rascals where former Town player Dave Edwards was in attendance, and finally The Loggerheads pub in Shrewsbury.

Children on the soccer schools at the Shrewsbury Lucozade Powerleague site next to Greenhous Meadow were the next to get their hands on the FA Cup, before it headed to the first team training session at Lilleshall National Sports Centre.

“It was a great honour for all of us and the town to have the FA Cup come down.

“What the football club have done by bringing Manchester United is great for businesses in Shropshire.”
The trophy then headed over to Salop Leisure whose company chairman, Tony Bywater, said:

“It was absolutely fantastic to have it in Ludlow. It’s wonderful to show the work that Shrewsbury Town in the Community do for the local schools.

“It’s great use of the football club and the facilities we have here at Ludlow Stadium and long may it continue.”
He said:

The cup was taken to Shrewsbury Town in the Community’s South Shropshire Regional Community Hub at Ludlow Football Club first for photographs with children on the South Shropshire Soccer School and the mayor of Ludlow, Paul Draper.

Ahead of Monday's night's Fifth Round Proper clash with Manchester United, the trophy made its way to Greenhous Meadow and was well-received by all.

The local community in Shropshire got their hands on the real Emirates FA Cup on Tuesday.
