    FA Cup (2019-2020)

    Following on from last years highly successful MM Road To Wembley, the 2019-2020 journey starts here with the Qualifying Extra Preliminary Round fixtures being played this weekend. A venerable cornucopia of team names to pick from, including our starting point of last year, Northampton ON Chenecks and Biggleswade both in action, with the sleepy Bedfordshire town again having the problem of two FA Cup ties on the same afternoon, how will the local plod cope with that one?

    After much deliberation, perusal and a temptation to chose Punjab United as our starting point (you have to pity Broadbridge Heath who have to make that long trip) I've gone with Hemsworth MW, a local team with connections to our recent trialist who face a trip to Kendal Town. If last year's history is anything to go by their Road To Wembley will be over by around 5pm tomorrow, as will ours in early November.

    The thread last year was good. Tough task to beat it this time around, plus we are a man missing!
    Good to see that Northants Old Northamptonian Northamptonshire Chicken-necks FC are back in there. The FA Cup wouldn't feel the same without them now.

    Venerable? Are the Benedictines sending a team with Bede in goal?!

    Well there are a veritable number with ecclesiastical sounding names like Abbey Hey, Abbey Rangers, Godmanchester Rovers. Good luck to Maltby Main who have a long trip to Shepshed Dynamo.

    One of the great things about being in League One is that we don't have to wait until the third round to get knocked out.

    Yes, maybe we'll have the MM anti-curse this year and Hemsworth Miners Welfare will go all the way

    Good win for Maltby Main on their long trip and spare a thought for Harrogate Railway Athletic who in losing 10-1 at home probably had a worse day than RUFC.

    The early pages of last years thread, when somebody (not me) was taking the Micky out of Monty Python was a classic... alas poor Monty, now in the racehorses graveyard in Didcot next to Zilzal (probably)
