Fleetwood fans remember FA Cup meeting with Blackpool

Fans of Fleetwood Town have been remembering the last time the team met local rivals Blackpool in the FA Cup ahead of their meeting in the competition.

The teams met in the competition's first round in November 1980, with Blackpool winning by four goals to nil.

John Hughes, a member of Fleetwood's "Cod Army" - the nickname given to their supporters - said he recalled the whole day.

"I can remember everything - from going to the pub at the beginning, to coming home at the end and saying the best team won," he said.

"It was just a great day out."
