Anstey Nomads, Beckenham Town and Sevenoaks Town have all won five FA Cup ties to reach the 4th Qualifying Round, the same number of wins the two Finalists will probably need.

FA Cup 2022-23 Q3 Rd Preview

80 clubs are competing for the opportunity to face a Step One National League side in the next round of the FA Cup.

Among them are 13 clubs that started their 2022-23 campaign in the Extra Preliminary Round. Seven of those are from Step Five, the highest number of clubs from that level in this round for five years. And two of them go head-to-head as United Counties League Premier North side Anstey Nomads host Shefford Town and Campton from Spartan South Midlands League Premier, with neither side ever having been this far in the competition before.

Shefford Town are in their debut campaign and they, alongside North West Counties League Premier side Bury AFC, are the last two debut clubs standing. Another North West Counties League side Congleton Town are the lowest ranked club left in the competition.

Essex Senior League side Romford FC have made it this far in the FA Cup for the first time this century and they host familiar opponents in the shape of Chelmsford City who had a five to one win ratio against a previous Romford club in the Cup.

After a terrific three step cupset in the last round Northern League side Ashington FC are in 3rd Qualifying Round for the first time in 12 years, whilst Helston Athletic of the Western League are making their first appearance in this round and are only the tenth club from Cornwall to make it this far in the competition.

Of the Step Four clubs that started in the EP Round, Beckenham Town will host Binfield FC in a tie that will guarantee a first ever appearance in the 4th Qualifying Round for the winner. Hanley Town, Sevenoaks Town and Three Bridges would all achieve the same feat in they won their respective 3rd Qualifying Round ties, whilst Stocksbridge Park Steels would equal their best run.

Walton and Hersham not only started their campaign in the EP Round, but they are also the current top scorers in the competition with 17 goals, and they travel to National League South side Taunton Town to try to add to that tally.

Only eight ties involve clubs that have met in the FA Cup before and Marske United have beaten South Shields on all three previous clashes, including a 3-0 win just last season. However, Gainsborough Trinity versus Worksop Town is happening for the thirteenth time. Trinity are ahead by nine wins to three, but the Tigers won 4-0 in their last meeting in the Cup 21 years ago.

The fact of the round involves Hemel Hempstead Town who, in their 232nd FA Cup game and 102nd FA Cup campaign, finally get to face an opponent beginning with the letter ‘P’, as they travel to Peterborough Sports.

FA Vase 2022/23 Q2 Round Preview

There are 179 ties and 358 clubs involved in the FA Vase 2nd Qualifying Round, three more ties and six more clubs than in the previous round.

Among the clubs are nine that are competing in the FA Vase for the first time. AEK Boco and Fleetlands FC are both starting their campaigns in this round, whilst Horden Community Welfare, Frickley Athletic, Basildon Town, Letchworth Garden City Eagles, London Samurai Rovers, Hartpury University and AFC Whyteleafe all already have an FA Vase victory under their belts.

Also recording their first ever FA Vase victory in this year’s 1st Qualifying Round were FC St Helens, FC Parson Drove, Larkfield and New Hythe Wanderers, Roffey FC and Callington Town, all of whom have home draws giving them the best chance of doubling their number of victories.

There are 23 other clubs which are equalling their best FA Vase run just by being in the 2nd Qualifying Round. Montpellier Villa travel to Roffey FC meaning at least one club will appear in the ‘Proper’ Rounds of the competition for the very first time.

Park View, Newent Town, Billingshurst FC and Lydd Town all face opponents whose best run so far in the competition is to the 1st Round ‘Proper’ (Little Oakley, Chipping Sodbury Town, Tooting Bec and Hollands and Blair respectively) meaning FA Vase history will be made or equalled as a consequence of those ties.

For Albion Sports to reach the 1st Round ‘Proper’ for the first time they will have to overcome former FA Vase winners Whickham FC who are one of six clubs that have lifted the Vase in the past competing in this 2nd Qualifying Round, the others being Whitley Bay, Brigg Town, Diss Town, Stansted FC and Deal Town.

Just over a fifth of the ties involve clubs that have met in the FA Vase before. There are two ties for which this will be the clubs’ fourth time drawn to face each in the competition. Birstall United Social have a two to one win ratio over Holwell Sports having beaten them 2-0 just two years ago, whilst Baldock Town have won all three previous Vase meetings with Long Melford, with all four head-to-heads happening across the last nine seasons.

AFC Blackpool, Nostell Miners Welfare, Ely City, Fleet Spurs, Sutton Athletic and Shepton Mallet all have a quick opportunity to avenge defeat by this year’s opponents in the competition from just last year, against Barnoldswick Town, West Didsbury and Chorlton, Mildenhall Town, Tuffley Rovers, Snodland Town and Mousehole FC respectively.

Langford FC have had considerably longer to wait to avenge a past FA Vase defeat having lost 2-0 to Stansted FC in the competition way back in the 1978/79 season. And it is also 30 years since Glasshoughton Welfare had the second of their two victories over Selby Town in the competition.

Brandon United will be keen to wipe a 5-0 defeat by this year’s opponents Pickering Town in the Vase from 15 years ago, whilst Verwood Town, Shaftesbury FC and Whitchurch United all had heavy four goal defeats to their respective opponents Cowes Sports, Badshot Lea and Moneyfields FC the only other time they met in the competition.

The club keenest to avoid defeat in this round may be Worcester City who have always made it to at least the 2nd Round ‘Proper’ in their five FA Vase campaigns to date.

FA Cup 2022-23 Q2 Rd Preview

48 clubs from the North and South Divisions of the National League enter the FA Cup alongside 112 other clubs from Steps 3 to 5 that have earned their place in this 2nd Qualifying Round.

There are four ties that involve clubs from Step 5 facing National League sides. Northern League Ashington FC and Midland Football League Lichfield City host Bradford (Park Avenue) AFC and Boston United respectively. Lowest ranked club Fisher FC from Southern Counties East League and Wessex League side Laverstock and Ford have the more daunting tasks of away trips to Welling United and Taunton Town respectively.

There are 16 clubs from Step 5 still in this season’s FA Cup and they, along with 19 of the Step 4 clubs still standing, started their campaigns this season in the Extra Preliminary Round. Walton and Hersham versus Chatham Town ensures at least one club from that list will still be involved in the Q3 Round.

28 ties involve clubs that have met in the FA Cup before with Hyde United versus Warrington Town the most common, having been drawn together in the FA Cup for the fifth time. Hyde United are ahead in previous meetings by three wins to one.

Spennymoor Town have the highest incentive to avenge a past FA Cup defeat against their opponents in this round having lost 8-2 to Clitheroe FC the last time they met in the competition 15 years ago.

Bury AFC and Shefford Town and Campton are the last two remaining debut clubs in this year’s FA Cup and both have tough away ties at seasoned FA Cup campaigners Lancaster City and Grays Athletic respectively.

These debutants are two of 11 clubs that are appearing in the Q2 Round for the first time. Westfield FC with 20 campaigns and Shepton Mallet with 19 are the two clubs that have waited the longest to make it this far in the competition. Shepton Mallet have now equalled the achievement of their predecessor club Shepton Mallet Town.

Hanley Town versus Atherstone Town Community Club, Waltham Abbey against Brightlingsea Regent, and Phoenix Sports versus Sevenoaks Town are three ties where the winner will at least equal or set their best FA Cup run this season.

Waltham Abbey are the current top scoring club of those still in the FA Cup with 14 goals in all, two ahead of AFC Totton, Anstey Nomads, Long Eaton United, Romford FC and Walton and Hersham.

Sheringham FC are competing in the FA Cup for the first time in 61 years and matched their best run in the competition when winning 1-0 at Lowestoft Town, a club that had beaten them eight times out of eight in past FA Cup meetings.

Herne Bay have now beaten Horsham FC in the FA Cup in all five of their meetings in the competition.

FA Cup 2022-23 Q1 Rd Preview

88 clubs across the Step 3 Trident Leagues join the 136 others that have battled their way through to the 1st Qualifying Round of the FA Cup, with at least 17 of those Step 3 clubs destined to exit the competition at this stage.

98 of those that have won through to the 1st Qualifying Round began their campaign in the Extra Preliminary Round including Wincanton Town of Western League Division One who are the last representative of Step 6 clubs still standing. They host AFC Totton as they look to continue their record breaking FA Cup run.

Wincanton are one of 17 clubs appearing in the 1st Qualifying Round of the FA Cup for the first time. Holyport FC and West Didsbury and Chorlton are both in their 9th campaign, whilst Harborough Town are participating in the FA Cup for the 10th time.

Amongst those 17 record breakers are five clubs experiencing the thrills of the FA Cup for the first time namely Buckhurst Hill, Bury AFC, Midhurst and Easebourne, Shefford Town and Campton, and Worcester Raiders.

The Raiders have taken to the FA Cup like a duck to water as they are the current joint top scorers in the competition with 13 goals, along with Ashford Town (Middlesex). Their star striker Jordan Murphy has netted six of their goals to stand out as the current top scorer in this season’s competition.

There are two ties where FA Cup history is guaranteed to be made. Fisher FC host Spelthorne Sports and West Didsbury and Chorlton entertain Macclesfield FC with the winners of each tie participating in the Q2 Round for the first time ever.

There are 25 ties involving clubs who’ve met in the FA Cup before, with two pairs of clubs being drawn together for the fifth time. Whilst Nantwich Town and Congleton Town have two victories each in past Cup meetings, Herne Bay have defeated Horsham FC on all their four previous encounters with an 11 to 4 goal aggregate.

Walton and Hersham will be looking to avenge a 5-2 reverse against Beaconsfield Town from just last season, as will Stourport Swifts who lost 4-0 at Lichfield City 12 months ago.

A couple of clubs have had to wait considerably longer to exact revenge for a past FA Cup defeat to this season’s scheduled opponents. At least Stalybridge Celtic did beat Lancaster City (Town as was) the season before their 2-1 defeat from 85 years ago, whereas Marlow FC were beaten for the third time out of three by Uxbridge FC one year earlier with an aggregate score of 17-4.

And with 262 campaigns between them Marlow versus Uxbridge is the most experienced FA Cup tie of all time!
