Ho Hum. A decent Conference National side but not an ex League club or anyone of any real glamour. A side that we used to play in the Ryman a few years ago.

Should be a decent crowd though as they will bring a few.

They’re currently further away from those days then we are though. More than holding their own against the ex-Football League lot, averaging 1,800 at home and even had their own Cup fun in the national spotlight (pies and all) a few years ago. Their gates are truly impressive, perhaps they are the club we should look to emulate above all others in terms of how they’ve grown and stabilised at a higher level. There must be lessons we can learn from them although none of that will matter on the 20th. Make no mistake, if we beat them, which we absolutely should believe we can, then it will be a big scalp. I know our cup record is famously poor, but I don't think we've beaten a "bigger" team at this stage for a long time or even lost to one.

We lost to Dagenham at the same stage two years ago?

Tough game with out the glamour and no big away following - well certainly didn't bring many back in the day; though that was before their cheap as chips season tickets.

Nowt to do with us....but the magic of the Cup

Dunston v Gateshead.. What a derby for Dunston. Gazza's local The Dunston Excelsior will be buzzing. :D

Also, Stockport v Alty would have been more fun if it had been the other way round. Stockport going there in the Cup would be summat else.

Oh yeah, whoops, silly me. They're getting bigger crowds and certainly seem more upwardly mobile than 'Dagger' these days but who cares, I guess. Season tickets mentioned by EE obviously a big factor.
