Canvey Island now that’s a team which brings back some bad memories. Be an interesting draw at least if we got them. Failing that Cray Valley at home.

Whoever ends up away at Cray Valley is going to be in for one hell of a culture shock.

I have an awful feeling that if we were to be drawn away at a lower league side we'd balls it up.

Don't care who we play as long as it isn't Maldon and Tiptree again, having said that we got rid of Carl Fletcher afterwards so it wasn't all bad.

Apparently if a side below the National League is at home their fans can go but ours can’t.. makes sense with the Corona only passing between supporters of the top 6 tiers like.

Another stupid rule. What's to stop away fans turning up not wearing their colours anyway, will it be all ticket/season tickets only or something.

Yep it will be more or less - Clubs below National North/South can allow fans, but their capacitys are currently capped. For example Bishops Stortford who are still in the FA Cup, currently can only allow 600 fans into their ground and you have to email them your details so they let you in.

Of Course all clubs will prioritize their own fans. Gonna be a hard watch for some of us if we're away to a club who can allow fans.

Having said that, if say Cray Valley end up playing Sunderland at the stadium of light with no one there, it will be pretty gutting and sad for them.

This is why I want a home tie!!

The last time we drew a team that wasn't in our division was in 2016.

We will once again draw another L2 team and lose at the first hurdle.

Apparently iFollow haven’t got the right to stream the matches live and at present it hasn’t been announced if games are going to be streamed live as some grounds will not have the infrastructure to do live streaming.

Marine are a fantastic non league club. Shame to see them so far down the football pyramid these days. Hope they get a decent draw and some much needed tv revenue.

I have seen you have been drawn against upper Ramsbottom in the Bury and district Sunday league.

Kings Lynn at home should beat them comfortably but knowing us we will make hard work of it.

South Shields at home - it's the type of draw you want at this stage. Certainly won't be taking it for granted, but we really should be winning that comfortably.
