FA shines light on new anthem


The FA has announced that Shine The Light by indie band Reverend and The Makers is to be its first ever official FA Cup Anthem, following a search to find the soundtrack to the world's oldest domestic football competition.

The Sheffield group has beaten off competition from five other shortlisted music acts including Lethal Bizzle, Devlin and The Enemy in a public vote and will perform their track live at The FA Cup Final on Saturday 11 May at Wembley.

The Reverend himself, Jon McClure, and guitarist Ed Cousins, spoke to 5Live's Breakfast programme about how they felt about being picked.
