Yep, very decent draw and a great chance to make round one.

The presenter was absolutely dreadful though.

We had AFC Flied, Gillsley and Sullyhill Moors. He also said Marske’s trip to Brackley was “a great draw” (it’s about the worst draw they could have got). Total amateur.

Great draw for us, which gives us a fantastic opportunity to get more prize money & through to meet the so called big boys.

Delighted we have a realistic chance to make more prize money but wouldn't it be great if we could have somehow had the chance to welcome a few live spectators also. like Alun Armstrong quite rightfully said all these years we've been saturated with away ties and now we're getting a few at home we can't get in isn't that typical of our luck.

I’d say Poolies have a good chance of being on the BBC. They’re at Step 4 Ilkeston.

Sholing v Torquay would also be likely (probably the favourite), and South Shields v Halifax is also a good shout.

Really pleased it's at home as we'll all be able to contribute via Quaker TV and hopefully we'll get some prize money £9,375 for a win and over £3,000 if we lose. Only the winners get some dosh after this round.

Agree it would be great to have fans watching in the ground, being saturated with ties either home or away is a welcome improvement on the Gray and Wright years when we were saturated with no ties after our first rounds.
And yes, that presenter was a disgrace. Could not even spend 5 minutes beforehand checking on pronunciations.
