    Great to see Hyde in the first round again. In the early 80s, my Grandad used to come to get me and we'd go and watch Hyde, if I wasn't going to Maine Road with my Dad. I still remember going to the first round FA Cup game against Burnley at Turf Moor, after which Burnley promptly bought their best player!

    Great memories of that trip to Turf Moor. Kevin Glendon was the player in question. Didn’t make many appearances before returning to non league football & then managed Radcliffe Borough for 20 years. Father of George who was at City before moving onto Fleetwood.

    Kevin William Glendon (born 21 June 1961) is an English former professional association footballer who played as a midfielder. After his retirement from playing, he spent 20 years in charge of Radcliffe Borough.

    Glendon was with Manchester City before joining Crewe Alexandra. He played four times in the 1980–81 season before joining Hyde United. He joined Burnley in December 1983, but was limited to four league appearances there as well and, after being released in May 1984,[1] joined Witton Albion. He joined Mossley in September 1984,[2] where he remained until being transferred to Northwich Victoria, for a fee of £200,[3] in October 1986.[2]

    He became the regional director of coaching for the players' union,[4] quitting in 1990 to become the full-time manager of Radcliffe Borough. In September 2010, Glendon resigned as manager of Radcliffe, ending a 20-year relationship with the club.

    His son George is also a professional footballer.[5]

    George played his last game for Hyde in late 1983 when they beat local rivals Stalybridge 2-0 in the 3rd qualifying round of that FA Cup run before signing for Bolton. He later went to play for Burnley & a few other league sides.

    It's barm so STFU.
    Chorley v Fleetwood also televised on the Monday night. 6th Nov. on BT Sport so another N-West team benefitting from a decent payout. Stephen Jordan is currently on Chorley's books I believe.

    Remember seeing him play for Hyde, I think against Macc.

    I hope this fixture helps them start climbing back up the pyramid, 2nd tier Northern Prem is not where they should be.
