FA Trophy 4th round

Post by JE93 » Mon Dec 21, 2020 10:04 am

Not sure if there is any regionalisation in the draw for the 4th round, but by my reckoning the teams remaining are:

Darlington
Peterborough Sports
FC Halifax
Solihull Moors
Leamington
Altrincham
Stockport
Kettering
Southport
Notts County
Hereford
Chesterfield
Boston
Dorking
Weymouth
Torquay
Dagenham & Redbridge
Sutton United
Hornchurch
Aldershot
Havant & Waterloovile
Bath
Haringey Borough
Woking
Wealdstone
Stamford
Alfreton or Kings Lynn
Oxford City or Truro
Bromley or Hemel Hempstead
Boreham Wood or Yeovil
Maldon & Tiptree or Gloucester
Maidstone United or Frome Town

Of that lot certainly not keen on a long away trip to the likes of Torquay or Truro. Notts County or Stockport at home would be a decent one, well supported clubs who we could probably sell a fair few Quaker TV streams to. If not give us someone like Stamford or Peterborough Sports at home. There may be some head-loss in Lincolnshire if Boston are made to come to Blackwell Meadows for a third time in a season.

Quite a few teams are located in tier 4 areas, so will they be allowed to take part or do they forfeit the match, effectively giving a bye to the other team?
Secondary question: would the prizemoney still be given if match cannot be played?

Darlopete will be along shortly to worry about the weather.....
Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"

Elite sport can continue, even in Tier 4.

Ollie Bayliss seemed to suggest teams below our level can't play or train in tier 4.

They could always categorise the FA Trophy as an elite competition mind I guess...they have effectively done that with the FA Cup.

Why would you not regionalise these rounds in this situation? That's absolutely ridiculous.

Depends how you define winnable the Bristol Rovers game was a winnable game at kick off time. They must start as favourites (based on respective league positions and our long journey) However, they have only won 2 league matches and one FA Trophy game having got knocked out of the FA Cup in the first round. As they say a free hit for us.

Think there is a scheduled flight to Southampton (well Eastleigh) which is not too far from Weymouth

Far from an ideal draw but definitely winnable. Weymouth’s home record in the league is won 1 lost 6. Our away record in the league is won 3 lost 1.
We can win this tie and progress into the last 16.

Aren’t one of our sponsors Teesside Airport? Maybe they could wangle some cheapies.

Frome kicking off about going to Maidstone / Tier 4 and asking FA to reconsider position on 'elite' clubs.
It is all going to end in tears or tiers :cry:
Yes, FA have booted out Frome & cited Rule 11 - rescheduled matches must be played within 5 days of postponed game, so Maidstone Utd go through
