Kids get chance to sleep with the FA Cup

Lucky children are being given not only the chance to lift the FA Cup - but to also wake up in bed clutching it.

Children who visit The FA Cup Trophy Tour - which will visit key cities across the country - will be chosen at random to win the chance to have the iconic trophy in their house for the night.

It means they can even drift off to sleep dreaming of the heroes who have lifted The FA Cup before them.

Six-year-old Finley Burridge from London was the first to have his dream come true, describing the experience as "amazing".

The FA's Sir Trevor Brooking said: "The FA Cup is one of the most recognisable pieces of silverware in world sport.

"We hope that a new wave of football mad youngsters can fall in love with the competition like generations of children before them."
