Good segment on Look North about Bentley.They seem to have made great progress in recent years particularly with the youngsters.

Not within 2 miles of the M62 though; seen it all before, they’re big time Charlies, fly by nights, they’ll never last.

Not sure why I posted where the clubs play

Apart from the armed forces all six teams south of Nottingham drawn away

A one in 64 chance in normal circumstances 

At least BARLA said in advance one year southern teams would have to travel

 

 

A regionalised draw would seem sensible at this stage - Rhonda travelling to Barrow Island could be crippling financially, same with London to York and Rochdale, it’s not like these teams are semi professional.

Where do the armed forces and Great Britain Police stage games?

GB Police play all over mainly north of England. No home venue as such. Played at Wigan St. Judes, Stanningley, Rochdale Mayfield, even Odsal and Headingley. According to their Facebook page, Challenge Cup fixture TBA.

Indeed. The FA Cup draw, for example, is regionalised all the way to the first round proper (I think) by which time there have already been six qualifying rounds.

Even the league cup, with fully professional teams, is regionalised for the first couple of rounds.
