    Yeah, I can't see why this has been put into midweek. Play the rounds on consecutive Saturdays ffs.

    Even more pedantically, it's Corinthian-Casuals.

    The 3rd Qualifying Round has been drawn.

    There will be at least one 9th tier side in the 4th qualifying round with Longridge Town and Skelmersdale drawn against each other.

    The aforementioned Sheppey United are one of five 9th tier teams through to the 3rd Qualifying Round. The others are...
    • Longridge Town (3-2 winners at tier 7 Stalybridge Celtic)
    • Skelmersdale United (2-1 winners against tier 7 Lancaster City)
    • Chatham Town (3-0 winners at tier 6 Folkestone Invicta)
    • Christchurch (beat tier 6 Gloucester City on penalties after a 1-1 draw)
    The draw takes place tomorrow

    Well, I got one prediction right at least; Sheppey United 2-0 Welling United.

    I've been wavering between Mossley v Tadcaster and Hyde v Fylde, leaning towards the former. Mossley tickets don't go on sale until this evening but out of curiosity I started the online form for Hyde tickets. Nowhere was I asked whether I was a home fan, away fan or (as was the case with my Radcliffe ticket last week) neutral. Nor, disappointingly, was I asked for my shirt size.

    No, neutrals appear to be allowed - if they can get a ticket ;

    Corinthian Casuals vs Dulwich Hamlet - Statement

    Following an announcement from the Department of Culture, Media and Sport in conjunction with the FA, Corinthian-Casuals will be unable to admit supporters of Dulwich Hamlet to King George’s Arena for the FA Cup 2nd Round Qualifying fixture on Saturday 3rd October.

    As the coronavirus is clearly clever enough to differentiate between supporters of Step 2 and 3 clubs, in their wisdom, supporters of National League clubs – which include Dulwich Hamlet – are banned from spectating.

    We have held back on the sale of tickets for the time being but will unfortunately have to limit these to Corinthian-Casuals and neutral supporters only. Please do not purchase tickets if you are a supporter of Dulwich Hamlet F.C. as both clubs have to adhere to these rules (we cannot believe we’ve had to type that).

    We’d like to place on record that as a club, we are not in favour of this utterly baffling ruling, we believe it is wholly unnecessary and we are having to put in place these restrictions under duress.

    Presumably that bars neutrals as well and you'd have to prove you were a home fan? Hard to administer at such short notice.

    I note that they're "10 wins from Wembley". Which would mean that the semi finals will be held elsewhere this season.

    ...

    Warrington Rylands v York City
    Latest from Rylands is they're still awaiting confirmation as to whether they will be allowed a crowd in (my suspicion is they won't, due to the rates in the area), and I imagine that'll be the same for a few of the ties involving the better-supported clubs in the technically able to attend section.

    But as SD says, a lot will depend on whether the Step 6 clubs are willing to play at all. Seems York are the only NLN club that wants to start the season as scheduled in the current circumstances (solidarity, brothers!), as I assume we're the only club that has already started paying players, but I can't see how that can really work. Another amazing bit of business acumen from our esteemed leader...

    Five ties there where both clubs would withdraw from the competition if the whole of Step 6 pulls out. The other home clubs could in theory reverse the fixture but they'd still have the issue of activating player contracts if they compete.

    Conference clubs don't want to play because they'd have to activate contracts which they would then be obliged to meet for the rest of the season, which would put them out of business.

    Discussions are "on-going" it seems.

    Some thoughts that the tie might be switched to Top Field. But a counter that says that Step Two clubs won't be allowed to play at Step Three grounds with crowds anyway. Technically though the FA Cup competition has nothing to do with the individual league rules does it?

    Truth is no one knows WTF is going to happen.

    It has been in the past, when both were in the Isthmian League. They'd still have expected a bigger crowd than usual I reckon.
