FA Cup Dreams..

FA Cup
Everyone will fancy a run, and there’s a couple of intriguing ties - our sides will be looking to avoid being the round’s fall guys with plenty of those pesky underdogs still on the scene.

Blackfield and Langley progress at the expense of AFC Totton whilst and Winchester City drew and stay in the hat

Thatcham Town is at Wessex League side Andover New Street - and they will want to stay on the right road!
Bristol Manor Farm comes up against Clevedon, while Frome is at Tavistock.

The winners, of course, take home nearly £3,000 but the loser also do not exit empty-handed. This year the defeated team will earn £960 for their efforts, the FA has announced.
