NEWS AT TEN *** FA CUP DRAW TOONEET'!

Posted '1:24pm bells' Munday 7th January 2019



The FA Cup 4th roond draw takes place tooneet at aroond aboot '10 bells' and NUFC are baall number 10 in the pot!

We are lucky of course to still be in it after Saturday's horror draw v Bleakborn, but unlucky az well az we will have to travel there a week on Tuesday or Wedinzday for the 3rd roond replay!

Like Bornley, just up the road, Blackborn iz a bleak place indeed for a midweek replay--especially on a freeezin caad January neet in this Lancashire outpost! (Hence we have renamed them 'Bleakburn Rovers'!)

Oot of the 30 odd teams left in the competition there are anly 4 groonds that we havent been tee---Barnet, Newport, AFC Wimbledon and Shrewsbury, who face a replay away to Stoke! (However!-- 'The NUFC mad-sad groundhoppers' have been to Barnet's, Shrewsbury's and Wimbledon's old groonds) 

A home draw would be preferable (IF? we can beat Bleakburn in the replay at Ewood Park), but if not, then an away tie at the above mentioned!

The Geordie Times will of course bring yoo the news of the draw az soon az we find oot and will be printed below!

Updated just before '10 pm bells'

The Toon have drawn Wotfaad at home, shud we beat Bleakburn in the replay next Tuesday or Wedinzday neet!
