Roy, hopefully they are not in our 'region'.

A quick Google search shows they're 13th in the Combined Counties League Premier (equivalent of the Western Premier), and it's a village near Woking and Aldershot.

So far in the cup this year they've had the following results:

Extra Prelim - Knaphill 0-0 Bournemouth FC
Replay - Bournemouth FC 0-2 Knaphill

Prelim - Laverstock & Ford 2-4 Knaphill

1Q - Guildford City 1-3 Knaphill

Can't really ask for a much better draw than that.

Yes, I know that will be the kiss of death.

It's their fourth season entering the FA Cup and this is their best performance to date.

What night is the replay? !!
Used to drive through Knaphill on the way to Woking's ground. Quite posh!
Surely we can't do our usual Cup exploits can we?
Err....probably.

Can we switch it to their place? When did we last win an FA Cup tie at home?

Gosport in 2013. And before that Totton in 2009. Notice a pattern?

I think it is also the first home draw against a level 9 (or equivalent) since Bideford in 2001 ... and that didn't end well.

These games are always tricky if you're facing an in-form team who're riding high in their league or have caused a few upsets. As we found in matches against the likes of Bodmin and Buckland when we only just scraped through.

With Knaphill below mid-table in their division, a position they finished last season as well, there should be no excuses. I expect them to have a go as they have nothing to lose, but we really should progress. The pathetic exits in the last two years should be enough of a reminder that what'll happen if we become complacent.

It's the equivalent to us being drawn away to someone like Portsmouth or Plymouth. I'd expect us to have a go but ultimately fall short.

Yep we all know the logic Mark...and many have seen City confound it several times hence the gallows humour.

I don't think we've ever lost at home to a side three divisions lower than us. Only possibility is Fareham Town in 1975 when the tie was switched to Twerton Park, but I can't work out where they were in the pyramid. We were Southern Premier.

The last time we lost to a side three divisions lower was in 1984 against Frome Town.

I also believe it's our 100th season in the FA Cup.

Let's hope that is not a final table.
Excitement here in Dorset as Bridport have drawn Cadbury Heath who are below them in the Western League.

Oh I'm sure it won't be. I'm unlikely to ever be that lucky again!

It won't be, there's still the Trophy and hopefully another round of the Somerset cup at least

Anyone who mentions the Somerset Cup in this thread is likely to be deducted points. Ok?
