If Carlsberg did FA Cup draws......... it wouldn't be this one. ;)

I want a real 'romance of the cup' draw one year, like Eastleigh or Bury (a few minutes away from me!), but we always get hit with mundane ties.

Have we ever drawn a non-league team ever?

Every other top team seems to have done at some time or another... but not us

Mind you... probably for the best lol

I seem to remember us playing one in the 70s I think. Possibly Blyth Spartans?
