This afternoon saw the draw of the Emirates FA Cup prelimanry round. Where we were drawn Away against Tavistock or Hengrove on the 24th August. Also we have been drawn at Home to Bideford on 12th October in the FA Trophy.
We've been looking through fixtures and where possible to find details on a previous match between the sides, but come up blank. If you are aware of a previous match let us know on the comments below. For those that are not up on the structure of the FA Cup. There are 14 rounds to navigate to reach Wembley, with each round see's more teams entering into the competition all the way up to the Third Round Proper (where Premier league teams enter). So we are just 7 wins away from seeing Harry Kane or Raheem Sterling at Badgers hill, but 12 wins from a memorable trip to Wembley...

Final (2) Our best FA Cup performance Back in 1954, we made it to the first round proper, where our largest ever attendance of 8,000 spectators saw Leyton Orient win 3-0 to end our journey in the cup. The cup is always a funny competition, so who knows where it will take us this year.
