Who will we get in the Cup/Trophy 22/23 compo Empty Who will we get in the Cup/Trophy 22/23 compo

With the draw for the 2nd qualifying round of the Cup being made on Monday, it's time to relaunch this award winning compo! Last season's winner was LB...

The aim is to predict who we will draw in each round of the Cup and Trophy. The results are based on the distance the club we actually draw is from your prediction (according to Google Maps)

Anyone who predicts the club we draw will be awarded 20 points - within 10 miles 19 points, 20 - 18 and so on down to 1 point for 190 miles distant. It will then go down to 0 and into negatives.

For example, if we draw Truro, but Ashley predicts Workington, 455 miles from Truro, his score would be -26. But if his prediction was Tiverton, 115 miles away, his score would be 8. Distances will be rounded up to the next multiple of 10.

Please make your predictions by 1200 Monday.

If you want to choose the winners of a 1QR tie before tomorrow's matches that's not a problem - simply state both clubs. eg Frome or Tiverton - your score will be based on the winner.

The 1QR fixtures are here (with the western fixtures on page 5)...

https://www.thefa.com/competitions/thefacup/fixtures

The draw should be 'regionalised' - at this stage last year we drew Shaftesbury.

And having entered do remember to check back on this thread to make further predictions as we advance on Wembley in both Cup and Trophy. And just a warning...
It would be unfair if those who don't enter a prediction were to score better than those who run up negative scores.
So if at least one predictor gets a negative score, any no entries will be given one point less than the lowest score (rather than 0).

Good luck everyone!

Oh rats! I've been choosing Hartley Wintney as my first pick in this competition for some years now - and the one time I forget to enter they get drawn! Sod's law, innit!

I knew Hartley Wintney was Roys usual pick so avoided them. But at least how the scoring works I am not completely out of it if we progress well enough.

By taking a more direct route than Google Maps calculates, the journey from Paulton to Hartley Wintney is 79.9 miles. Very Happy

Do I get an extra point, PLEASE Sir comrade?  Who will we get in the Cup/Trophy 22/23 compo 1f607  Who will we get in the Cup/Trophy 22/23 compo 1f443
