Ex-Accies Celebrate FA Cup Win

Wigan Athletic's shock win in tonight's FA Cup Final is especially sweet for the ex-Accies contingent, notably James McArthur and James McCarthy, but also Assistant Manager Graeme Jones.  One of the Accies Blog team, Ian Kelly, was at Wembley to see it happen.

Speculation elsewhere that qualification for Europe triggers add-on payments to Accies for the James boys. Regardless, it's quite an achievement for the former hoops heroes, and one we can all take pride in.  On ITV, they said it was an Irn Bru celebration - it was certainly one at least partly made in Hamilton.


  1. Absolutely delighted for the James Gang, and not forgetting Graeme Jones. The only surprising thing is that a team featuring Gary Caldwell could win the FA Cup! :-)

  2. A good all round team performance from Wigan. Never looked overawed or outplayed and at times City couldn't handle some of the Wigan play hence the ordering off. A team that has won the FA cup has never been subsequently relegated that season. Fingers crossed but its a tall order for Wigan

  3. Great picture on the official site -
