FA Vase 2020/21 4th Rd Preview

My favourite stat about the FA Vase is that in every single Final since the first one in 1975 at least one of the two Vase Finalists were competing in it for the first time ever.

And this season is looking as if it will keep up that tradition, with only two of the remaining 32 clubs ever having played in a Final in the past. In Hebburn Town’s case, that past is actually in the future as they are involved in the oft-postponed 2019/20 Final not being contested until 3rd May 2021.

In fact. more than half of the clubs still in this season’s competition have never even been beyond the 4th Round of the FA VAse before.

The FA Vase really is the only national competition in the world where any club that enters it has as much chance as anyone else of actually winning it. It truly is the most egalitarian of football competitions.

Hebburn Town host one of the 11 clubs appearing in the FA Vase 4th Round for the first time, Liversedge, and the only other club to appear in a past FA Vase Final, West Auckland Town, also face opponents appearing in the 4th Round for the first time.

Their opponents, North Ferriby, are actually competingin the FA Vase for the first time ever and are the last debut club still standing.

As a consequence of so many clubs still in the competition having record runs, and half a dozen others equalling their best runs, there will be at least three clubs appearing in the 5th Round for the first time ever.

Fakenham Town host Binfield, Mulbarton Wanderers take on Hanworth Villa, and Long Eaton United entertain Westfields hoping to repat the 2-1 victory between the two clubs in 2004/05 season.

That is one of only three ties in this season’s 4th Round that involve clubs which have met each other in the competition before. Christchurch beat United Services Portsmouth 3-0 in the 2017/18 campaign, whilst Stourport Swifts beat Walsall Wood 3-1 in the same season, although Walsall Wood did win 2-1 in their first encounter 30 years ago.

There was actually another tie that pitted two clubs together who’ve met in the competition before, but as Stowmarket Town has sadly withdrawn from the FA Vase, Cobham won’t need to try to repeat their 5-2 win of the 1998/99 season to reach this year’s 5th Round for the first time.

There are still half a dozen Step Six clubs amongst those still involved in this year’s FA Vase, and they all have higher level opposition to face. As the competition’s highest scorers, Mulbarton Wanderers should fancy their chances against Hanworth Villa. However, their visitors are the second highest scorers so that should be an entertaining tie (commentator’s curse notwithstanding).

Malvern Town and Walton & Hersham are the only two Step Six clubs drawn away from home, travelling to Congleton Town and Leighton Town respectively. On paper they have the biggest challenge to progress, but both actually defeated Step Five opponents in the last round.

Four ties involve clubs who would have faced each other in League action had the seasons not been curtailed. Stourport Swifts versus Walsall Wood is one of them, as well as Anstey Nomads against Wellingborough Town, Bridgwater Town versus Tavistock and Plymouth Parkway against Clevedon Town

That final tie that will see at least one club which has progressed beyond the 5th Round in the past exit this year’s competition.

FA Cup 2020/21 Quarter Finals Preview

With 227 Quarter Final appearances between them, this season’s octet of FA Cup Quarter Finalists is the second most experienced at this stage of the competition in its history. And it includes two clubs who jointly hold the record for most FA Cup Quarter Final appearances.

Everton and Manchester United have both reached the last eight of the competition for the 46th time each, a staggering third of all the FA Cup campaigns there have ever been. Additionally, more than half of all the 140 FA Cup campaigns since 1872 have witnessed at least one of Everton or Manchester United in the Quarter Finals.

Manchester United are also appearing in their seventh consecutive FA Cup Quarter Final, the third highest such consecutive run in the competition’s history. Along with Chelsea this will be the Red Devils’ 14th Quarter Final appearance of the 21st Century. Only 2001 and 2014 have witnessed FA Cup competitions this century where neither Chelsea nor Manchester United were in the last eight.

At the other end of the spectrum is AFC Bournemouth, the only non-Premier League side left in the competition, who are equalling the club’s best ever FA Cup run by reaching the Quarter Finals for only the second time in their history, a whole 64 years since last doing so. It’s the longest gap between first and second appearances in the last eight in FA Cup history.

AFC Bournemouth are one of only two clubs in this season’s FA Cup yet to have their name etched on the famous trophy’s plinth. The other is Leicester City, who famously have appeared in the most Finals without ever lifting the Trophy, and are the only club to be crowned English League Champions never to have won the FA Cup. Will either of the Cherries or the Foxes become the 44th different FA Cup winning club this season?

All four Quarter Final ties involve clubs who’ve met in the FA Cup before. AFC Bournemouth and Southampton have been drawn together on just one previous occasion, 67 years ago, a 1st Round tie won 3-1 by the Cherries in a replay. All the other three ties pit clubs together who’ve met in FA Cup Finals in the past.

Manchester United have won both their previous encounters against Leicester City, last doing so in the 1975/76 season on their way to Wembley, but first defeating the Foxes 3-1 in the 1963 FA Cup Final. Quirkily, that was the last Cup Final involving the tradition of playing the National Anthem after the game as well as ahead of it.

Sheffield United and Chelsea are drawn to face each other for the sixth time in the FA Cup. Chelsea have won four of the previous five encounters, most recently in 1991/92 season, but the Blades won the one that counted, 3-0 in the Khaki Cup Final of 1915 played at Old Trafford.

The most common tie of the Quarter Finals is Everton versus Manchester City, facing each other for the eighth time in the competition, but for the first time since another Quarter Final 40 years ago won 2-1 by Manchester City.

However, the Toffees have a four-to-three head-to-head advantage over their opponents in past FA Cup meetings, including a 3-0 win in the 1933 FA Cup Final, the first Final to involve players wearing numbers on the backs of their shirts … but with a twist. Everton players wore numbers one to eleven, whilst Manchester City wore twelve to twenty-two.

It would be sixty years before we saw the Number 22 appear on a shirt in a Cup Final again.

FA Cup Continues to Make History

For the first time in four seasons there are four non-league clubs who have made it through to the FA Cup 3rd Round, and each of them has drawn a plum home tie. But that’s not the big story!

The FA Cup this season will witness an historic first competitive match between two clubs separated by seven levels in the Football Pyramid as Marine FC of Northern Premier League Division One North West host Premier League title challengers Tottenham Hotspur at Rossett Park.

Marine are only the second club from Level 8 in the pyramid to reach the 3rd Round after the feat was first achieved by Chasetown 13 years ago, and the Mariners have already won through seven Rounds of the FA Cup this season just to get here.

It’s fair to say that if Marine were somehow to become a member of that exclusive club of teams which have won eight FA Cup games in the same season it would be regarded as the greatest feat of Giant-killing in football history.

Two of the other four non-league clubs in the 3rd Round are on record-breaking runs themselves. National League North side Chorley FC have made it this far for the first time in what is their 113th FA Cup campaign, a record number of campaigns for a club making their first appearance at this stage of the competition.

Chorley take on EFL Championship side Derby County having become the first Step 6 side in FA Cup history to defeat two Step 3 clubs away from home in the same season, Wigan Athletic and Peterborough United.

When you are celebrating a milestone of campaigns in the FA Cup you are always hopeful that it will be a memorable one. Well that has certainly come true for National League side Boreham Wood who have commemorated their 50th FA Cup campaign by reaching the 3rd Round of the competition for the first time ever.

The Wood host EFL Championship side Millwall on Saturday lunchtime, with their opponents having been an FA Cup finalist as recently as 2004, and having reached the Quarter Finals twice in the last four seasons.

The fourth of the non-league quartet in this season’s FA Cup 3rd Round is National League side Stockport County who entertain premier League club West Ham United on Monday evening so they are guaranteed to be in that evening’s 4th Round draw.

Whilst the Hatters have been as far as the 5th Round of the competition in the past, this is the first time they’ve made the 3rd Round as a non-league club. And having knocked the Hammers out of the FA Cup once before, albeit in the 1930s, who’s to say it couldn’t happen again.

With the way this season’s FA Cup is progressing, it wouldn’t be that much of a surprise to see three non-league clubs in the 4th Round for the first time in 46 years. Or even four?
