The Football League is to make Steve Fletcher the first recipient of the newly-named Sir Tom Finney award.

Finney, one of the game's greatest ever names, died last month and his name has now been attached to the award the league gives to recognise an outstanding career.

Forty-year-old Fletcher retired last summer after a 24-year career spent largely with Bournemouth.

The award will be presented at Sunday's Football League awards by Preston manager Simon Grayson. Finney spent his entire playing career with the Lancashire club.

Can Bournemouth cause another FA Cup upset 30 years after beating Man United?

Thirty years ago, a third division Bouremouth side managed by Harry Redknapp knocked holders Man United out of the FA Cup at the third round stage.

Goals from Milton Graham and Ian Thompson were enough to record a famous victory on the south-coast, some two-and-a-half years before Sir Alex Ferguson took over at Old Trafford.

This weekend, the Cherries host Liverpool live on ITV hoping to cause another upset. Can they do it?
