FA Cup Zones and Team for 2nd Qualifying Round

Post by super_les_mcjannet » Wed Sep 12, 2018 10:48 am

Always wondered why Darlo struggle to get a cup run? Well found the below on Southport forum and if true does indicate it's tougher for Northern teams to progress as less minnows in our draw. (I know any excuse for us :) )

We are in Zone 1 by all accounts, I have added % of teams from a lower league and you can see we are more likely to hit a team at our level than the other zones.

Not sure if it's similar every season.

ZONE 1 (14 NLN and 20 survivors) 59%
ZONE 2 (7 NLN and 27 survivors) 79%
ZONE 3 (13 NLS, 1 NLN and 50 survivors) 78%
ZONE 4 (9 NLS and 19 survivors) 68%

This was last seasons allocations by all accounts.

I did wonder for a second why we struggle to get a cup run in recent times, then I remembered. " GRAY "
