Congratulations to those Ryaman League sides that moved through to the FA Cup 1st Rd Today. Very well done to Gravesend & Northfleet, Aldershot, Basingstoke, Grays, Bedford and those from lower leagues. Excellent performances from Grays and Gravesend.<P>carjam

Last team out of the hat and back to my University Town. <P>Huddersfield away (Still non-league side playing in a superb stadium could be a televised game)

Crikey, we've got Barry Fry and his Peterborough boys coming to town. Fantastic!!!! He's an old Eagles player and manager himself from the good old days and still lives in the town. I reckon he's probably as chuffed as I am with the draw.<P>I can't stop smiling.

Baldie man you got the tie of the round for a Ryman side. A bit like canvey drawing Southend i'd say. Good luck. D'ya think you'll switch to posh for a bigger gate?

Just woken up - the smile is still there!<P>I hope we don't switch it but financially we'd be mad not to. Only 3000 can get into the Eyrie although I'm not quite sure where we'd put them all. I think, with away fans, we could easily get that.<P>Whatever, it's going to be a massive day for the club. My dad once played against Barry Fry's school team - the local rivals. Apparently he hacked him down to give away a penalty which Barry scored. A 1-0 defeat.<P>I'm off to search for a ticket.

Barry Fry eh, ex-Gravesend player.<P>And it's another ex-Gravesend player that you will need to watch out for. Their player of the moment is skinny boy himself Jimmy Bullard.

Has Barry played for as many teams as he's managed then?<P>I think they'll have about 11 players we'll need to look out for. Our right-back signed from Peterborough last season - he'll be wanting to prove big Barry wrong.

Hello Irony, welcome back.<P>Sorry to hear about your knee incident. I trust you'd put in a blinding performance up until the unfortunate injury.<P>Still no ticket yet for me. It's looking as if the game will be played at the Eyrie which I think is excellent but does make the ticket hunt that much more urgent. Apparently our capacity will be 3,009 and with all the clingers on that will no doubt come out of the woodwork it would be a shame if any of the more loyal fans miss out. Also a chance to welcome some new supporters though and hope a few come again.<P>You never know, we might even have a few more league points by then too.

Excellent news - we're playing at home. With highlights on MOTD too.<p>No ticket yet but I've heard that season ticket holders and shareholders will have priority - that's me sorted then.<p>Splendid.

Troble is Canv is that if either of us do get a result then guess which league match gets scuppered.<p>If it has to be midweek, then let's wait till April, my fur-lined jockstrap is getting a little threadbare images/icons/smile.gif" border="0 <p> <blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">quote:</font><hr>You never know, we might even have a few more league points by then too. <p> <hr></blockquote><p>Bald Eagle I think your only league game before then is at Stonebridge Road, and we are not feeling charitable images/icons/tongue.gif" border="0<p>[ 01 November 2001: This message was edited by: Dave GNFC ]</p>

So far we have booked two coaches and there will be a large number travel by car. (That's those of us who don't think we need to stop at every service station on the way back for a pee)<p>**** I'm crossing over into the toilet thread now images/icons/smile.gif" border="0 <p>We have two home games before 17th November so we should be able to fill those coaches and I hope 2 or 3 more.
