Reverend And The Makers for FA Cup

Indie rockers Reverend And The Makers are hoping to score a hit after their track Shine The Light was chosen as the official anthem of the FA Cup.

The Sheffield group, who had a top 10 hit in 2007 with Heavyweight Champion Of The World, won a season-long Battle of the Bands competition with acts including The Enemy and Lethal Bizzle.

They will perform the track live at the cup final at Wembley on Saturday.

Frontman Jon McClure said: "We said before this that we'd prefer our track to become the official FA Cup Anthem than to be a number one. It genuinely means that much to us, and we can't thank our fans and all the people who voted for us enough. For me, the only thing that would be better is if Sheffield Wednesday were to win the FA Cup next season - but I reckon we can settle for this now."

The winning track, which is already used as the signature tune on football simulation game Fifa 13, will be played throughout next season's competition.
