2020-21 FA Cup, 2nd Round: location-map, with fixtures; with attendances from the previous season

-The competition…FA Cup (
-BBC’s page on the competition…

FA Cup Second Round matches are set for Friday the 27th through Monday the 30th of November.
But before that, there is one 1st round match still to be played: Barrow AFC versus AFC Wimbledon, on Thursday the 26th of November. (That match, which had been scheduled for the 7th of November, had been postponed due to several AFC Wimbledon players being tested positive for COVID-19.) I will adjust the map page accordingly, following the outcome of that match.

    The biggest Cup-upset in 2020-21 FA Cup 1st Round…
    Marine AFC (8th level) beats Colchester United (4th division)…

Marine are from Crosby in Merseyside, 6 miles (by road) north of Liverpool. Marine are an 8th-level club playing in the Northern Premier League Division One North West. On Saturday the 7th of November, Marine traveled down to Essex to face 4th-division side Colchester United. In the 22nd minute, Marine DF Anthony Miley scored, on a rebound off the post from a free kick {see photos and captions below}. In the 64th minute, Colchester equalised with a goal from their captain, MF Harry Pell. At the final whistle, the match remained at 1-1. So it went to aet, and after that, it went to penalties. All 5 Marine players converted their penalty shots {see them below}. And so Marine AFC beat a club 4 League-levels and 90 League-places above them. In the Second Round, Marine have been drawn to play versus 6th-tier side Havant & Waterlooville, at their Rossett Park in Crosby. That match will be the late game on Sunday the 29th, and it will be televised. {Televised matches.}
