I've read that some NLN/S clubs may withdraw from the Cup as if they play these fixtures they will trigger the start of their players' contracts. Which, as we still don't know if we'll have a season, might be precipitous.
Got to feel sorry for the players, in all of this.
So, for Non-Elite v Elite, the wording says: “Both clubs shall ensure that spectators of the visiting club are not in attendance at the match”. How on earth are they going to do that?! Will the home clubs have to restrict ticket sales to their own members or S/T holders, with no tickets sold on the gate?
I was considering going to Corinthian Casuals v Dulwich Hamlet on Saturday as a neutral. I might have to have a re-think now.
What a joke.

Just noticed this on the Corinthian Casuals website. I love the tone.
"Following an announcement from the Department of Culture, Media and Sport in conjunction with the FA, Corinthian-Casuals will be unable to admit supporters of Dulwich Hamlet to King George’s Arena for the FA Cup 2nd Round Qualifying fixture on Saturday 3rd October.
As the coronavirus is clearly clever enough to differentiate between supporters of Step 2 and 3 clubs, in their wisdom, supporters of National League clubs – which include Dulwich Hamlet – are banned from spectating.
We have held back on the sale of tickets for the time being but will unfortunately have to limit these to Corinthian-Casuals and neutral supporters only. Please do not purchase tickets if you are a supporter of Dulwich Hamlet F.C. as both clubs have to adhere to these rules (we cannot believe we’ve had to type that).
We’d like to place on record that as a club, we are not in favour of this utterly baffling ruling, we believe it is wholly unnecessary and we are having to put in place these restrictions under duress."
The draw for the 3rd Qualifying Round was made earlier today, games to be played around the 13th October ( the night we host Notts County ), we come in the round after this one

Do we foresee any upsets in tonight and tomorrow nights cup ties? This the round before we enter! A couple of long journeys tonight with Maidstone travelling all the way to Wimborne Town and Dulwich playing Christchurch which happens to be the televised game on the BBC!
georgieboy: Brilliant result especially after travelling up on day. Well done all.

merchandiser: You guys make me laugh, have you been to many away grounds, I don't think so. When we travelled up north for most of the trophy rounds last season, you would not believe, it was like going back to the seventies.

Stewart: The NL season starts on 3rd August The fixtures are due to be released on 3rd July.

scorpioeyes: I predicted a relegation struggle with a totally inexperienced manager. Hope I am wrong, but it doesn't look like it. MG is out of his depth,that's obvious.

ggl: So are we now saying we have a manager who is not in favour of bringing in loan players and if the board decided to part company with him they cannot afford to do so ?

historyboy: So sorry to hear about the passing of Eddie Clack. I Remember him well.
Oct 24, 2019 17:13:12 GMT
historyboy: Sad to hear of the passing of Eddie Cack, I remember him well. I think that the said photograph publishsed by the club, of him sitting next to Dave Hermitage, isn't him at all; I think the picture shows Micky Goodall. Compare other pictures of both.
