Bastard of a draw. Probably the toughest we could have pulled from within our own division.
Yep. B.I.G.'s birthday weekend though. Rum in Hampshire.
Still anything can happen in football/it's only takes a second to score a goal/funny old game etc etc.
Looking for positives, their priority will clearly be promotion when you consider their appointment of Paul Doswell as manager and subsequent recruitment of experienced players following relegation from the National Division last season. Teams in that position are often prone to slip up in cup games. We've underachieved in recent league matches but we've got a lot of experience ourselves, and whilst we're potentially a top 7 side (and therefore promotion contenders) I think a cup run with a few wins in big matches is a more readily attainable goal for us right now.
We could have had Woking, or Torquay, or Bromley which would have been a tougher task on paper. This could well go to a replay which Havant won't really want, whereas I'd relish the chance to get them back to The Hill on a Tuesday night.
And, of course, if we draw you just know we’ll get Bristol Rovers away...
I'd be more than happy with that.
There would definitely be a supporters coach booked for that one!
When can I book onto the supporters coach for Havant please?
Fix. Royston Town v Maldon & Tiptree
and Potters Bar Town v Barnet are local derbys!
Sutton United should see off #Rickerty.
B.I.G. are we doing something special for your birthday (other than the obvious rum drinking)?
A possible curry if we win!
Watch this space B.I.G - will be looking to tie up details first thing this morning.
I’m im. £16? Boom!
I have a feeling we could see peak B.I.G
OH well, would have preferred Chichester away but not far away from there in terms of mileage! Hopefully H&W are focused solely on promotion. Was it Newport (IOW) that we last met at this stage?
Not that local, in my book!
No, Hayes in 2000/01. We lost 4-2 away having led 2-1. They were a National Division club at the time.
We beat Newport 3-2 at home two seasons earlier to reach the 1st Round for the first time in 50 years.
Royston is between Hitchin and Cambridge, Maldon is between Chelmsford and Colchester. I wouldn't be surprised if they've never met before.
Geography schmography! If it ain't south London it's bandit country!
it was close last time we played at havant.
