Former Town Player Hopes For More FA Cup Joy

21 February 2016

Paul Bevan Reflects On FA Cup Memories

"I just hope that if we don't beat them then we get a draw and go back to Old Trafford," said Bevan.

"I can remember going back to when we played Chelsea away in 1966 and lost 3-2.

"It was a brilliant achievement back then.

"I got the opportunity to play against the team I support, Tottenham, when I played for Swansea and Crewe.

"I also remember playing against my hero Martin Chivers, that was my most memorable FA Cup moment.

"In those days, Shrewsbury were playing in the old Second and Third Division."

And the 63-year-old, who attended Meole Brace School as a youngster, took the time to speak to ShrewsWeb about his FA Cup memories.

Spending time with his family in The Loggerheads pub in Shrewsbury, Bevan, a right full-back who played for Town in the 1960s and 70s, got his hands on the famous trophy as it made it's way around Shropshire on Tuesday.

Former defender Paul Bevan hopes Shrewsbury Town can pull off another brilliant achievement in the Emirates FA Cup against Manchester United on Monday.
