Have your say

Tonight saw the draw made for the first round of the FA Cup, with four of our teams in the hat. Here’s what fans had to say on twitter about their pairings.


Very unhappy with #facupdraw donny got weston super mare, chesterfield get weymouth & we get crewe in L1 what a load of cr*p - @SufcLee

Hopefully we’ll give Crewe the hammering they deserved on Saturday now - @JamesMckenna10

Started away to a team beginning with C last year #justsaying - @Dansenior89

Away again. Not the most exciting draw. But Crewe is a winnable game. COYRAWW! - @CraigLadson

Crewe away, at least @JamesShield1 knows where he’s going for his lunch....again! #chippy - @1jonterry

Crewe away. Brilliant. Just played that tie last weekend. Boring draw. :-( - @TheJoynes

Away from home in a cup that’s unusual!! - @david_greatorex

Urgh, Crewe away is about as uninspiring as it gets! - @ben_liversidge

BARNSLEY V Burton Albion

Grimsby away would have been mint! Ah well Burton at home it is. - @scatterparty

Guaranteed we’ll find some way to lose against Burton haha - @TheGodfatherUk

Don’t think it’s that bad a draw to be honest! - @Onemattpepper

Weston-Super-Mare v DONCASTER ROVERS

Weston Super Mare away in the FA Cup... what could possibly go wrong there? - @daniel_nice7

Only a 400 mile round trip, bring it on!!! - @jkomn156

WSM is ideal for an away day. Pubs, seaside, fish and chips. Well apart from the travel. And cost. And timing. - @markusparkus75

W-S-M currently in the relegation zone in Conference South. Serious banana skin. Decent chance it could be on the telly. - @paulgoodwinDFP

Hope its on Tv, aint no way am I travelling all that way to watch Weston Super Mare, sorry - @J05H24

So we’re all on a trip to Weston super mare - how far away is that again? @levitt_richard

Who are they? - @marcuspacey

Weymouth or Braintree v CHESTERFIELD

Hope it’s Braintree, it’s not too far from me plus I don’t really know where Weymouth is! - @Beckster1969

I always like to see the sea so Weymouth’d be nice :) - @PoMoPink

Seriously though it’s a winnable tie for us. I’d prefer Weymouth to Braintree but it’s a bloody long journey either way - @ryandickens_cfc

Yessssssss! What an FA Cup draw!!!!! Love both those places and teams!!!! Wooooo! #MagicOfTheCup - @Lesley_CFC

Weymouth or Braintree away - it’ll be interesting to visit a lower league stadium rather than the flat pack ones of league one - @TomSkinner01

Hope it’s Braintree, god knows how you get to Weymouth! #milesaway - @SaraCFC
