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!


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

  • A great draw- with the right approach, counting no chickens before they hatch, I can see no reason why County cannot progress! #excited
