Wembley Plays Host to the Final of the Non-League Cup
2013-03-19 — /travelprnews.com/ — This March 24th, fans from two of the biggest and most venerable non-league clubs will be scouring for great deals on London hotels as they prepare for the long pilgrimage down to Wembley stadium.
Wrexham and Grimsby Town will line up at the home of football to contest the 44th final of the Football Association Challenge Trophy, with both very much still in the hunt of achieving a league and cup double.
Going into the final ten games of the season, Wrexham are just two points off the top of the Blue Square Bet Conference, whilst Grimsby, eight points back with two games in hand find themselves in the last playoff place. With a gap opening up between the top five and the rest, though, both teams look certain of at least a play-off place.
Fans from both clubs will be in good spirits as they make their respective long journeys to the capital, hopeful that they can emulate York City’s cup winning effort last year. The Yorkshire team emerged triumphant in both the FA Trophy and the race for promotion in a fantastic run of knockout football at the business end of last season.
Wrexham go into the match narrow favourites, having secured their place in the final with a fine 13 match unbeaten run, but, as the old saying goes, the formbook goes out the window when it comes to a cup final.
For fans looking to making a weekend of it in the capital, LondonTown.com is the place to go for great deals on London hotels. The best location for the final is the Ibis London Wembley, a mere five minutes’ walk from the stadium and with rooms start as low as £33!
For those looking for something a little upmarket, LondonTown.com has secured a huge 78% discount with the world famous Hilton chain of hotels, bringing the Hilton London Wembley down to £96 for a double.
