Who put the 'x' in Halifax?

The news of a FA Cup draw to Halifax Town away is a bit underwhelming and I wonder how many Addicks will make the trek.  Lose and it's another Northwich, win and it's no big deal.   But I think we need to win to maintain our confidence.

The fans of Halifax don't have the best of reputations.    Leamington played them there in the FA Cup a few years back and were narrowly defeated, but took a lot of verbal.   In the last round of the FA Cup, Halifax were away to Lancaster and it all kicked off in one of the stands after ten minutes, leading to an ongoing correspondence in The Non-League Paper about who was to blame.

One Addick recalls, 'Personally, it reminds me of the 2-2 draw up there in the early seventies, first game of the season I think, went up on a Lewis coach which was attacked with bricks in the car park after the game.'
Possibly last week's most surprising news is a £1.5m sponsorship deal for Yeovil, but it isn't going on a cover for the away end:

However, we could well be two divisions apart at the end of this season.
