Magpies 2: for Joy

Congratulations to Maidenhead United on getting through to the first round of the FA Cup for the first time in 35 years!

Following today's 1-0 victory over Merthyr Tydfil in the final qualifying round, the Magpies will play Stafford Rangers on 11th November. A long-awaited return to the main draw for a team that played in the first ever FA Cup way back in 1871 (and made the quarter finals a couple of times in those early years).

I noticed they were through. Shame they didn't get a money spinning home tie against a big side like Notts Forest, or and easy game against Bristol City. I noticed Lewes were through too - bet a few pints of Harveys were drunk on Saturday.
