Can we go out of all 5 cup competitions at the first hurdle ? Or will the youths save us from that embarrassment?

Well it's ideal opposition; some would call it a straightforward home tie, at least one person would refer to it as a "banana skin". Leverstock Green, a village just outside Hemel Hempstead with a population of less than 10,000, provide the opposition.

Home ties with Barnet and, potentially, Middlesbrough await the winners.

Tomorrow's referee is Paul Howard from Bermondsey who is making reasonably rapid progress through the non-league ranks. A couple of years ago he was promoted to Level 3 and this year he was promoted to the National Conference Assistant Referee panel. He was previously the co-ordinator for the London FA young referees support group (smart move, things like that help referees get on!). Refereed the FA Cup derby match between Thurrock and Aveley earlier this season without too many problems.

Assisting him will be two newly promoted Level 4 referees, Thomas Marshall from Kent and James Hurst from London.

Mr Howard seems to have been appointed to a Ryman Premier match on the following day, but I'm pretty sure FA competitions take precedence.
