Southampton midfielder Cork wants to win FA Cup - just like Dad

Southampton are in the FA Cup to win it, says midfielder Jack Cork.

Cork's dad Alan was a member of Wimbledon's famous 'Crazy Gang' side who beat Liverpool 1-0 in the 1988 final at Wembley.

The former England under-21 international said: "I'm even starting to grow my beard like his.

"He actually texted me before the Yeovil game in the last round to say 'There's still only one medal in the family' and I saw that just before the game.

"I would love to get as far as we can. The semi-final is at Wembley - so right now anywhere near that sort of stage would be brilliant and I know that the lads would love it too."
