FA CUP R2: Cherries take on the Spartans and get extra £40,000

By -

Setanta add another £40,000 to the ‘Find the Cherries a striker’ fund

The Cherries will take on Blyth Spartans in the FA Cup Round 2 replay on Tuesday 16th December, kick-off 7.45pm.

Setanta Sports will be televising the match again, giving the Cherries a much needed £40,000. Add this to the £20,000 for the first round and the £80,000 for the first game in the second round and the Cherries will have made a grand total of £140,000 if my maths are correct. If they make it to the third round that will surely guarantee a tidy sum, not sure how much. But, a conservative estimate of £20,000 profit will see unexpected earnings of £160,000. Surely, more than enough to buy a stirker that isn’t non-league and guarantees at least 15 goals a season. Please spend the money, because we are desperate.

Plus, at least I wont have to sit in the freezing cold to watch that pile of shite for a second time. I can sit in the comfort of a warm welcoming pub and spend the ticket price money on a few beers. Good luck to anyone making the journey, you are truly demented. Let’s hope the Cherries make it worthwhile.
