Isthmian League minnows Haringey Borough hosted League One AFC Wimbledon in the first game of the FA Cup first round, broadcast live on BBC One for the nation on Friday night.

Supporters were able to celebrate the early rounds of the competition despite the non-league side failing to score in a brave but narrow late defeat at their Coles Park Stadium.

These were the best jokes as we watched Haringey Borough 0-1 AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup first round:

I lived in Wood Green for almost year, so I'm not just rooting for the underdog here. I'm Haringey Borough for life mate. Cut me and I bleed *checks team colours* yellow and blue. #facup

Insult of the night picked up by the microphone behind the goal as a Wimbledon fan is clearly heard calling the Haringey keeper a “camera-saving prick”#FACup

The best thing about lower league football being on TV, is that you can hear exactly what the supporters are yelling at the referee. #HARWIM

The Haringey manager saying live on the BBC that he is going to give his players ‘a bit of a bollocking’ at half time is absolutely The Magic Of The Cup. #FACup

The Haringey manager’s belting line of “Nine years ago we only had two season ticket-holders and one of them died” sadly overlooked by Dan Walker and co in that post match interview#FACup
