Video Lynsey Hipgrave Mistake FA Cup Draw 2020- Female presenter Calls Havant & Waterlooville as Torquay and Crewe Skelmersdale mix up for Bolton opponents

By Soccer Blog | Oct 27, 2020

The 2020/21 FA Cup first round draw was conducted yesterday, and it wasn’t the best of evenings for presenter Lynsey Hipgrave, who made a few mistakes early into the draw while conducting it alongside Grant Holt.

Hipgrave first called Havant and Waterlooville as Torquay United (when No.75 was drawn), but moved quickly to correct that error.

However less than a minute later, she mixed up Skelmersdale and Crewe Alexandra ( No.15 & No.50) while announcing Bolton’s opponents. She also said “they were up against Bolton Wanderers”, when Bolton were the home team.

Female presenter for FA Cup draw calls Havant and Waterlooville as Torquay United

This is unfortunately not the first time Hipgrave has been involved in a gaffe during the Cup draw- she mixed up the teams during the 2018 semifinal draw.

    My word, that was bad. Perhaps easier if she was only asked to call out the teams rather than also having to talk about their history as well?

    Sorry but these presenters are paid thousands of pounds just to read out the names against the numbers and a one line fact.
