The famous trophy lifted by Vincent Kompany in May went on display at Gilford Supporters' Club flanked by two security guards.

It's the biggest prize in British sport - and it pulled in quite a crowd.

"You see can the smiles on people's faces, they are desperate to get a photograph with the trophy," said Kevin Parker from MCFC Official Supporters' Club.

"It is unreal, you still pinch yourself. We still all sit down when we get the chance to watch those last 15 minutes, the trophy will never, never be won like that again."

And local fans are confident their team can get one over on the red half of Manchester again this season.

Ian Uprichard of Gilford MCFC Supporters' Club said: "I would like to think so, I think it is going to be a lot tighter this year.

"Chelsea have bought two midfielders, United ... you cannot write United off in any season and any season they have lost the trophy they have come back to win it the next year.

"But I hope that doesn't happen!"

The trophy will visit other supporters' clubs in Northern Ireland before being sent to Dubai next week.

Former Manchester City player Gary Owen said: "We didn't have much to shout about over many years so it's a pleasure not only to bring the trophy, but for some of the boys to come over and enjoy it with them."

It's a two-horse race now, but one even the most-seasoned pundit would be brave to call.
