Truro had Margate two years ago so I think it's now a 'simple' north-south split.

Thanks. That's not good though - Billericay is my punt then assuming the inevitable tomorrow.

D'you know how the splitting is for the previous round out of interest!?

There's nothing in the rules to stop you copying someone else's prediction, otherwise it will be a problem for the semi final draw. I'll put you down for Banbury...

East Thurrock would be even worse than Billericay so I'll go for them

You do realise that Billericay are not through yet, having drawn yesterday? So if their opponents win the replay your points will be based on them.

They're home to Shildon. The organiser of the Banbury 'guess who we'll draw' competition has got his calculator out.

Ours could've been worse. At least it's home. We've never lost to Hemel at TP. Wingate & Finchley are doing well in the league below.

This Hemel fan on the Conf South forum is not optimistic!

Good job we're going out tomorrow because Wingate stand a bigger chance of winning a game at Twerton than we ever will.

Or is it geographical in the sense that there's a boundary splitting our league so we could potentially avoid Concord/ Dartford etc as they're so far east?

Also not sure if we can get Ryman clubs - in which case we'd be nailed on to get Billericay..

Never assume anything! Sudbury away to Truro - round trip of 720 miles!

One suspects that how the FA divy up the teams for the cup draw is only known by a select band of grey men in grey suits but I suspect it involves a £6.99 road atlas and a red pen.
If you look at round 2, ties 1-17 were very northern,18 - 34 had a midlands and the Far East feel to them, 35 - 66 is London and the SE and 67 - 80 is our bit of the world.
3Q ties 1 -17 are in the north, 18 - 40 south.
Clearly some teams move around the various red lines that get drawn. Banbury case in point was in SW zone but is now in north. Oxford was London SE stat in south. Hereford was midlands now south.
So teams in our league at 2Q were spread over two zones but it would be difficult to see any at 3Q to be exiled to the north but not impossible.

As regards our next opponents, Wingate & Finchley are currently 1-0 after a fifth minute goal, with about ten left in the first half.

Identical records in the league and we've both won our last three league matches.

It'll be close. Which worries me as I probably wouldn't be able to make a replay.
