A review of Monday's FA Cup 2Q draw.
Monday’s Second Round Qualifying draw for The FA Cup with Budweiser has given us 80 ties to be played on 1 October.
The Conference North and South clubs enter at this stage. Hyde, five points clear at the top of ‘North’, have an away tie at the winners of Wednesday night’s replay between Staveley MW and Pickering Town.
The ‘South’ leaders, Welling United, face a Kent derby at Bromley while fourth-placed Sutton United, the last non-League club to knock a top-flight side out of The Cup, also have local opposition at Gander Green Lane in the shape of Dulwich Hamlet.
Maidstone United, sixth in the Isthmian League’s Division One South, made themselves the club to avoid in the draw after scoring nine times away from home in both ties this season – 9-0 at Corinthian and 9-1 at Banstead Athletic. They have now been handed a home tie with Bognor Regis Town from the same division.
FC United of Manchester, the Northern Premier League team who won memorably at Rochdale in last season’s First Round Proper, will be at home to Lancaster City if they win tomorrow night’s replay at Woodley Sports.
Bournemouth FC of the Wessex League, not to be confused with ‘AFC Bournemouth’ of League One, edged Isle of Wight side Newport 2-1 before 65 fans at Victoria Park on Saturday to earn a plum home tie with Truro City from the Conference South.
