We don't enter until the Preliminary Round this year, and will be away to either our league rivals Biggleswade FC (who we're playing in the league on Bank Holiday Monday, two days after the Preliminary Round) or Mildenhall Town, depending on who comes out on top in that tie this weekend.
So, for the Extra Preliminary Round this weekend, I'll either be at Desborough Town or Holbeach United, while keeping an eye on goings-on in Biggleswade.
Watching Punjab United v Broadbridge Heath on the BBC stream. Turns out Punjab have a player with the exact same name as me, so I’m backing them. Punjab play about ten minutes away from my sisters too, so I may have to go over there one day.
Lost 4-0 today against league rivals Biggleswade in an embarrassing performance. Gave away two penalties, had a man sent off (in his first appearance, no less) and offered absolutely nothing. Doesn't help of course when several first team players decide to go on holiday on FA Cup weekend every season.

I like many County fans I imagine, have no idea how this level works really. I know the FL dates inside out and knew roughly when the NLN stuff began (basically as soon as the season started it seemed)
We just bypassed this place like a falling pebble.
After an early scare, we comfortably spanked Scarborough 5-2. A hat-trick for Jack Sampson, and 3 of our goals came from long throw-ins - about time it worked for us! Also a debut goal for George Newell, which made me feel old as I saw his dad score on his Everton debut 30 years ago in the first ever match I went to!
Lynn were the better side for the opening twenty minutes as we struggled to get going. However as the game wore on we improved and was the better side in the second half. Lynn deservedly took the lead after 17 minutes through Adam Marriott. Amari Morgan went close with a header before David Lynch scored a rare goal with a pearler from outside the area.
We made the majority of the running in the second and was awarded a penalty after Danny Clarke was upended by the keeper after a strong run on 61 minutes. Amari stepped up but after a long delay which didnt help blazed it over the bar.
Kings Lynn did strike a post late on but its a third meeting of the season and we are not even at the end of September!
