Rather than disappoint their kids - London Tigers have put their historic entry into the FA Cup on hold.
The Spartan League side were originally scheduled to play Eton Manor in the FA Cup, extra preliminary round on Saturday.
But because their Kingsbury ground had been booked for a youth festival, the outfit that pride themselves on their community programme, decided to postpone the match by 24 hours.
Tigers will now become the first west London non-league side to play in the Cup for 100 years when they face Essex Senior League side Eton at midday on Sunday.
Captain Tariq Ellekhlifi (right) reckons his team-mates will give a good account of themselves against a team from the same step five in the non-league pyramid system.
He said: "We had no intention of surrendering home advantage, which was the alternative to playing on Sunday.
" The youth festival had been booked for Saturday long before the FA Cup draw, but we're thrilled to be the first team since Fulham in 1907 to be a west London non-league side in the competition.
"Maybe, the Sunday timing will bring a few more to watch the game."
* TIGERS got their Spartan League campaign off to slow start on Saturday with a 0-0 draw at Biggleswade United.
The match was outstanding for only one statistic - just two shots were on target for the whole 90 minutes.
Renars Zarchenko fired an effort into the arms of the Biggleswade keeper,and Tigers' Siki Kambila was equal to a low shot he dived to his right to hold on to a downward header.
