Rubbish draw at a place we know well. By then we should have some extra bodies back to be able to rest a few key players.

They beat Chesterfield in the last round, now they get us.
they beat Chesterfield under 18's!!
You pre-empted my question John.

Chesterfield should be docked league 21 points for fielding a weakened team!

Why is it a rubbish draw? It’s not a place we’ve been to much recently - after 90/91 we’ve only visited twice.

Obviously home is preferable but as away games go at least it's not Gateshead or Solihull or Macclesfield. Plus as they are sitting in the relegation zone in NLS you would hope if we went with a strong 11 we should give ourselves a good chance of getting to another trophy quarter final

It's a winnable London game at a nice (well i like it) ground which will provide some respite to the wallets of our loyal away supporters and afford others the chance of boosting those numbers.

The perfect draw and still opens up the possiblity of Barnet v Hendon final.

What's not to like?

Uninspiring but winnable and not too far to travel.

I had it stuck in my head that we were going to draw Chorley away. So pleased I got that wrong!

Their current form is second worst in NLS. So we have a chance :D

The perfect draw? I'd have preferred a home tie for a change.

Wealdstone v Hendon is a local derby. I remember watching a nasty game between the two when they were in the same division. Not the best reward for beating Oldham but i hope they win.

The Hendon fans seem pretty pleased about it.

After a 400+ round trip in the last round and the risk of drawing Gateshead, Macclesfield, Chorley etc, I can well imagine why they're happy about only a 20 mile round trip to Wealdstone.

Just had a look at Welling forum. Apparently all bar one of the team who played on Saturday ( which presumably was their strongest side) are young, their goal scorers aged 18 and 20 and there was a 17 y.o. playing.

Chesterfield's antipathy towards their FAT match v Welling was such that not only did they send the youth team players but Paul Cook didn't even bother going!
