Win FA Cup tickets courtesy of E.ON

by Neil Sherwin

No sooner has one competition door closed than another one opens and this time FA Cup sponsors E.ON have given us two sets of tickets for next Saturday’s clash between giant killers Stevenage and Championship side Reading.

We’ve teamed up with FA Cup Sponsor E.ON to offer you an amazing prize. We have two pairs of tickets to watch Stevenage v Reading in the FA Cup Fourth Round on Sunday, 30 January 2011 (Kick Off 15:00).

In the previous round Stevenage caused a huge shock by beating Newcastle United by three goals to one, avenging their narrow loss to the same opposition in 1998.

Reading meanwhile also overcame Premier League opposition as a Shane Long strike was enough for them to defeat West Bromwich Albion.

Once again it’s very simple to enter the competition. Simply tell us:

What is your favourite giant killing moment in the FA Cup?

Closing date for entries is Tuesday, 25 January 2011 (midday), and you must be able to attend the game at Broadhall Way in Stevenage.

    Watching my beloved Reading knock out liverpool away at Anfield. Scoring in injury time to get us back on level terms with a Gylfi Sigurdsson penalty, only to then go on and win the match with Shane Long sending us into the next round, and helping us on our way to our best ever cup run, very nearly resulting in a trip to wembley.

    Stevenage 3 v Newcastle 1
    Boro fan for 20 years, what a match, pay back time, brilliant match, come on the Reading

    Stevenage v Newcastle 3-1 was brilliant but the 1-1 draw in 1998 considering we were part timers and the media interest meant a lot more. Tough call between the two both great times to be a Stevenage supporter!
