Keep dreaming big football fans, earn a fabled FA Cup replay against the might of Manchester United and you can celebrate in style by buying a toilet.

Cambridge United chairman Dave Doggett won't mind us making fun of his plans for a whopping windfall worth more than £1 million, because it allows him to finally put plans in place for a long overdue upgrade of facilities at the Abbey Stadium.

New toilets and tea-huts at the Abbey Stadium are among Doggett's main priorities for the League Two heroes, who defied the odds to prove more than a match for United in Friday's 0-0 draw.

The U's might even have won the tie if Josh Coulson's first-half header had drifted just under the crossbar, but Doggett got the chairman's dream of a money-spinning injury regardless.

When asked about his plans to spend the windfall of a lifetime for a club who only earned promotion back to the Football League last summer Doggett revealed: "Hopefully we can get the stadium done and start putting in some proper toilets.

"Some toilets and tea bars and more hospitality - that's what we will do"

Old Trafford trip one to savour

Doggett has a replay against the Premier League giants on February 3rd to plan for before picking out a plush new bog though, with at least 9,000 Cambridge fans set to visit the Theatre of Dreams.

A fantastic weekend of FA Cup giant killings means there's plenty of romantic stories up and down the country for fans to savour, but beyond the glamour of results on the pitch Cambridge can make strides to secure their own long-term future thanks to the fantastic efforts of Richard Money's side on Friday.

Long after the cameras have gone the very real benefit of improved infrastructure across the board will hopefully help Cambridge thrive, with a prolonged spell in the doldrums hopefully now just a distant memory.
