Here are some of the fans who queued round the block for FA Cup semi-final tickets.

Today was the first day that season ticket holders could get their hands on FA Cup semi-final tickets for the game against Millwall on Saturday 13 April.

Supporters were out in force at the DW Stadium ticket office on what was a bitterly cold morning.

Plenty more bought their tickets online but we caught up with some of the fans who made it down to queue up.

One fan had just arrived at the back of the queue down the side of the East Stand at 10am and said:

"Days like these down come so often and last time I went to Wembley to watch Latics I was only 8-years-old, it's going to be worth the wait to get these tickets."

Another supporter, Glenn Morris added:

"It's freezing but I don't care because it won't be long until I've got my Wembley tickets."

After getting their hands on their tickets, season ticket holders James Duffy and David Hassall were delighted to get their tickets.

David said:

"We started queuing at about 7am and they opened the ticket office early at around 9am which I thought was a great idea."

James added:

"If we go to Wembley and win then we can do it all over again and it's going to be great."

There were plenty of supporters in the queue and at home who got in touch via Twitter and below are some of the best.
