FA Cup - Havant and Waterlooville head to Anfield

Havant seal a trip to be Liverpool's Waterloo

Anfield will welcome Havant and Waterlooville in the FA Cup, as last night the Blue Square South side beat Swansea City, the Coca-Cola League One leaders, 4-2 to earn a fourth-round tie away to Liverpool.

The part-timers are the only non-League side in the FA Cup, but led 3-0 after 37 minutes. However Swansea fought back, and narrowed the gap before a fourth goal from Tom Jordan (son of Joe), sealed victory for the non-league side. Jordan has announced he wants to leave, but he now might fancy delaying his departure until after the Anfield trip.
Also the owner, Derek Pope, has promised an end of season bonus of a trip to Las Vegas, as a reward for this dramatic victory.

Liverpool watch out - it might just become Rafa's Waterloo!

The Hawks will probably get thrashed but at least they'll get a nice income from the match.
I wish it was on TV, but then it could be horrendously humiliating watching it.
