FA Cup Q4… the final hurdle before FA Cup 1st round proper… and County have drawn
Bishop Auckland at home
A famous name, having won the FA Amateur Cup ten times and reached the final on a further eight occasions.
Nicknamed ‘The Bishops’ or ‘The Two Blues’
They play in the Northern League Division One – a few steps below County in the pyramid – the 9th tier of football so three steps below. North West Counties level. This is a tie we can win (and pocket £12,500) and get in the hat for the FA Cup 1st round proper!
COME ON COUNTY !
As an aside, older readers may remember Tommy Sword who played for Bishop Aukland. Would be nice if the club could invite hime back for this
