    Newport County fan and poet Sean Edwards wrote a poem about the upcoming fixture against Spurs which will be played tomorrow, January 27th, about what it really means to a smaller team to have an FA Cup run.

    The FA commissioned a video of a reading of the poem narrated in part by Michael Sheen, a fellow Newportonian, and others from the city.

    Even if you're not a fan of either team I think the video is well worth watching.

    If you just want to read the poem then here is a link, but it's best to watch the video in the link above.

    The game is today so this still worth a look.

    It’s good to see that the “smaller” clubs still look forward to the visiting “big” clubs. It helps clubs like Newport survive so it’s good that there is publicity.

    Quite a tribalistic poem too!

    Is this Sean Edwards still at primary school? Despite the awful poem I love games like this. Good luck Newport County.
