Players from across the football pyramid will have their names at the heart of this season’s Emirates FA Cup Final.

The FA has placed the names of 137 goalscorers from this season’s competition on the Nike Ordem V, Cup Final ball to be used at the 137th edition of the showpiece fixture.

The Ball For All celebrates players from Step 6 of the National League system through to the Premier League, who all share the accolade of being a goalscorer in the world’s oldest domestic cup competition.

The names included represent goalscorers from every round, beginning at the Extra Preliminary Round through to the Semi Finals and also include a selection of the season’s most memorable and impactful strikes.

Representing the Chairboys is striker Adebayo Akinfenwa, who bagged the third goal in the 3-1 win over non-league Leatherhead in the second round of the competition.
