For Non-League football club, Crawley Town, this afternoon’s FA Cup 2011 Fifth Round draw could not have gone better, as they were rewarded for their 1-0 win away at Torquay yesterday with a lucrative trip to Manchester United’s Old Trafford.
When Crawley made it through the Fourth Round yesterday, they became only the sixth non-league side to make it to this stage of the competition – and the first for 17 years, since Kidderminster Harriers achieved the feat in 1994.
If they can upset Manchester United in their Fifth Round tie, they will become the first side from outside the league to make it to the FA Cup Quarter Final stage since World War Two.
The FA Cup 2011 Fifth Round will take place on the weekend of 19-20 February 2011.
