The League 2 team, Crowley, had to fight Leeds Marcelo Bielsa in the 1/32 FA Cup. It is interesting that the team from the country’s fourth-ranked division easily coped with the Premier League club (3: 0).
However, this meeting presented the football community with another interesting news story. In the 91st minute, Crowley was replaced famous English TV presenter Mark Wright… He spent only a couple of minutes on the field, making his debut in the tournament.

Mark constantly participates in reality shows, has worked on various television channels in the country, such as BBC, ITV, CBBC. Apparently, his own radio broadcast was not enough for him.
Previously, Wright worked at the academies of West Ham, Arsenal and Tottenham, but failed to gain a foothold with the Premier League giants at the youth level, after which he wandered in the National League (the fifth most powerful division). Mark, 33, kept fit on a regular basis, and during the pandemic tried to find a job in clubs from Ligue 1 and Ligue 2. Crowley responded to his request.
