    FA Cup 2017/18 - California Dreaming

    ...of a trip to Amesbury!

    Extra Prelim and Prelim Round draws are out. There are sixteen clubs making their FA Cup debut in the EP - including Eversley & California of the Combined Counties League.

    In the Prelim, Carlton Town are drawn away at either Boston Town or Radford, tie to be played Aug 19th. Now, that weekend, Mrs KGR has booked for us (plus kids) to go to Butlins Skegness for the weekend. Yes, I know.

    Anyway, quick overexcited perusal of the train timetables shows me that Skegness to Boston is 37 minutes by rail. Plenty of scheduled trains on that date. Now to pluck up the courage to ask, though I'll wait to see if Boston Town get through, of course, 14 days earlier.

    Eversley merged with California youth football club a few years ago. California is an area of Berkshire that has more connections with speedway than football. The California Poppies were a speedway team in the 50s with racing taking place there as far back as the 1930s. You can still see remnants of part of the track now at the Country Park it stands on.



    I'm guessing they had to disband as one bike isn't really enough to compete.

    My side Bracknell Town have a home draw against Cowes Sport of the Isle of Wight. Really need to avoid a draw as a replay midweek on the Isle of Wight would be a tricky task.

    Runcorn Linnets v Hemsworth MW could be fun. They met at the same stage last year and there was quite a bit of mither which included a mass brawl between players, coaching staff running on the pitch, multiple red cards, accusations of a player being kicked on the floor and a Runcorn spectator chucking the ball from close range at the linesman's head.

    I went to their first meeting, last season in the Cheshire Cup. Hardly anybody supporting the zombie team. They also met in the final of the Mid-Cheshire Cup. So far both encounters have been won by 1874. This will be the first time that Victoria have been drawn at whatever home ground they are using (Barnton I think this season).

    It's a village that has been swallowed up by Northwich. It's on the road up towards Runcorn.

    I was going to suggest that Banstead had a good draw 'away' to Epsom & Ewell, but then I check to see that Epsom have not only moved but moved twice. Are they likely to get their own ground again?

    Also is the extra-preliminary based on league position, past performance or just luck?

    Fig Rolls aren't a biscuit, anyway.

    This was a real jolt for me, realisation of just how far down the pyramid we have tumbled in recent years. Can't remember seeing H&Y or Hayes starting in the Preliminary qualifying round... and I'd never even heard of Brimsconbe & Thrupp before.

    And we don't even know where this match will be played, Hillingdon Council have yet to issue the required safety certificate for the new ground, almost a year after telling us we can't play there. Still, the only way is up. Right?

    Yep, never a good sign when your first match might have to be against a newspaper supplement...

    Hoping to be at Daventry- Worcester. Bit of a fall from grace for the visitors...

    I like it when they insert made up team names in there to check people are paying attention

    Unless I'm on holiday I hope to be at The Big B369 Derby between Walton Casuals and Molesey in the Preliminary Round. That said, I'm not sure where Casuals will be playing their home matches as I don't know if the ever-so-evocatively-named Elmbridge Sports Hub will be open by then.

    Just realised I can do an Extra-Preliminary Round fixture too if there is one within striking distance of the Olympic Stadium where I'll be for the World Athletics Championships that evening. I wish The Real FA Cup site still did that map of fixtures but I'm sure I'll be able work out the nearest one before then.

    Elmbridge Sports Hub notwithstanding, there's little more evocative than skimming down a list of FA Cup preliminary round ties. First glance at the 5th August ties and my gaze landed on #55, Dunkirk v Leicester Nirvana. As Nesta alludes to, with half of them you really would think someone was just making them up to test who's paying attention properly.

    Nice to see FC Romania actually consist of ex-pat Romanians.

    What is the entry criteria for the extra-preliminary round?

    I wasn't aware that Quorn is an actual place, and that Marlow Foods' mycoprotein marvel is named after the village. I presume Tofu FC will enter in the next round.

    Nothing easy or attractive near me - Albion Sports are from Bradford but play at Farsley Celtic's ground which is too farsley. Pontefract Collieries play in the absolute arsehole of West Yorkshire and even if I was minded to go, the public transport connections would test BB&F's patience. I could go to Emley if it's not raining I suppose.

    Dunkirk and Nirvana are an evocative day out- if Leicester and Nottingham's suburban estates are your thing
