Filed under: 2009-10 FA Cup — admin @ 6:34 pm


On the map this round I have added another column on the far left…percent change in average attendance from 2008-09.

Here are the clubs in the 2009-10 FA  Cup Second Round that also made it to the 2008-09 FA Cup Second Round…Aldershot,  Barrow,  AFC Bournemouth,  Brentford,  Forest Green Rovers,  Gillingham,  Kettering Town,  Leeds United,  Luton Town,  Millwall,  Notts County,  Oxford United,  Port Vale,  Stockport County,  Torquay United,  Tranmere Rovers.  That’s 16 returning clubs.

One of the ties is a West Country derby between Conference side Forest Green Rovers and Conference-South club Bath City.  Forest Green won their First Round replay v. Mansfield Town in Nottinghamshire on Tuesday the 17th;  while Bath City had one of the 3 biggest upsets in the First Round,  defeating League Two club Grimsby Town up in Lincolnshire.   [The other two big upsets in the First Round were Staines Town over Shrewsbury Town,  and Northwich Victoria over Charlton Athletic.  Other notable upsets were Kettering Town over Hartlepool United,  and York City over Crewe Alexandra.  In the asterisk department for upsets would be Oxford United over Yeovil Town,  and Luton Town over Rochdale.  I say this because although Oxford and Luton are in a league that is below Yeovil Town (League One) and Rochdale (League Two),  both Oxford and Luton are historically more successful clubs which have far larger fan bases than Yeovil and Rochdale.]   

Here are highlights of the First Round match:  Grimsby Town 0-2 Bath City,  with Bath City’s Darren Edwards scoring a fine goal at around 0:50 in the video {click here (YouTube via}. 

The Bath City v. Forest Green tie,  along with the Cambridge United v. York City tie and the Oxford United v. Barrow tie,  assures that at least three Non-League clubs will make it to the Third Round in January 2010.  Last season a record 8 Non-League clubs made it to the FA Cup Third Round.  Right now,  there are 12 Non-League clubs still alive in the 2009-10 FA Cup.
