Challenge finished

A GROUP of friends are celebrating after completing a challenge which saw them see a game in every round of the world’s oldest football competition, the FA Cup.

Simon and Daniel de Choisy, Mark Bulley and Nick Walden watched Chelsea beat Liverpool in the final at Wembley last Saturday.

The match saw them finish the challenge which began at Cecil Street in Rothwell for a game between Rothwell Town and Raunds nine months ago.

The idea came about last summer when the group became disenchanted with supporting the Poppies following the move to Nene Park in Irthlingborough.

Mr De Choisy, 44, said: “We’re all delighted.”
