So Karen was right as usual then, here it is in black and white, well green and red:

So what do we know about Leighton Town's opponents on Saturday, Walsall Wood, here are photographs of their unusual looking Oak Park home as well as from their Fifth Round win on penalties over Anstey Nomads yesterday:

Darren Byfield manager there isn’t he? Sure I remember seeing that Sylvan Eubanks Blake had signed there. This might all be pre covid though.

Unlike Karen following the FA Vase Quarter Final draw, I won't create a Semi Final thread just yet but here is the draw with ties over one leg, unfortunately it wasn't very kind to Leighton Town should they beat Walsall Wood on Saturday:

Semi Final is now Saturday 15 May and not midweek

Karen - Thanks, it was unjust to expect Leighton Town or Walsall Wood to travel up to Hebburn or Warrington for a Wednesday evening tie, at least common sense has prevailed:

That's right, this article in the Leighton Buzzard Observer confirms it, I expect Joe Sweeney is looking forward to shaking hands with Darren Byfield and enjoying a glass or two of Barca Velha in his office with him afterwards:

Walsall Wood are a really strong side, managed by an ex-professional Darren Byfield so we can expect a really tough test, but at this stage of the competition it’s always going to be.

A huge disappointment for Leighton Town on Saturday however you can't knock their achievement of reaching the FA Vase Quarter Finals three times in the last four seasons. See photographs, the match programme and some YouTube footage from the tie with Walsall Wood:
