So here we are .......... non league & having to go through the qualifying rounds to get into the 1st round proper (Saturday 6th November).

I see there are some qualifying rounds tomorrow - seems like a special set of games for teams that start with the letter B.

Bearsted v Banstead (no I am not making that up)
& Bridgwater v Brixham

Do we start on 18th September in the 2nd round qualifying? No - 16th October it seems.

Time to finally go on a cup run perhaps? Fingers crossed.

A cup run for us usually means making it to the second round!

Just had a look at the draw for the Preliminary Round, and wonder if we'll end up playing the likes of of these? ;
West Allotment (poor pitch)
South Park (striker Kenny is out with another fatality)
Quorn (way before you went Vegan Forest Green Rovers)

Does anyone know what happened to local side White Ensign? Saw they won in the extra Preliminary Round, but couldn't spot them in the fixtures being played this weekend?

Qualifying match currently being shown on the B.B.C.

Sheffield F.C. in action - the world's oldest football club?

Moot point given that they didn't adopt association football rules for the first 20 years of their existence during which time they continued to use their own "Sheffield rules".
However generally accepted as the oldest independent club. Saw them play at Wembley in the Vase final (and again at Nottingham Forest for the replay).

Whilst everyone was enjoying themselves at Lynn I took in my second cup game of the season yesterday.
Having seen the odd folk of Portland United draw 2-2 (and go out in the replay) two weeks ago in the Extra Prelim, yesterday we took in another Dorset footballing hotbed as we travelled up to Shaftesbury (home of that hill in the Hovis ad) where they promptly took out AFC Stoneham 6-1.
We stood behind the Stoneham Ultras (they had a flag declaring this) as the goals piled up, they swore quite a bit so we moved our view for the second half. Shaftesbury were awesome on their new 3G pitch, particularly their No. 7 who had a terrible haircut, and in getting to the First Qualifying Round they equalled their best ever performance in the comp in their 131 year history. Indeed they last got that far back in 1952 so have had a bit of a bad run of late. Heady days for the Hovis boys now, though we overheard a biased home fan say that they are as good today as they've always been (bread pun)
Got talking to an FA rep after half time, there to earn £35 and an afternoon out on expenses to tick a score sheet and get annoyed by the bloke sitting the other side of him who brought his hound to the match who was not a football fan
Love a cup game, and have found of late that the best way to enjoy one is to watch someone else other than Southend

You're correct, we'd all enjoy watching football if we didn't have to watch Southend.

That's the cross we have to bear though.

Taking a fair bit of imagination. They play Peterborough Sports who are top of their division, one level higher than Wakering, who had won every game 'til they lost to Leiston Saturday.
