This is where the road to Wembley begins in earnest with the draw


We want you to get in touch, as always,


With me is Kevin Kilbane and representatives from two teams


who are in the first-round draw for the first time.


from Westfields, who play in the Midland Football League


the 9th tier of English Football and are the lowest ranked team


And Spennymoor Town manager Jason Ainsley.


Spennymoor are in the Evostik Northern Premier League Premier


Welcome to both of you. Andy you have spent six matches to get to


this point. It's been an almighty cup run already. How does it feel to


be here? Fantastic. A long journey, started on August 6th against the


Swifts and since then we have beaten St Ives down, Highgate United,


Bolton Casuals and won on Saturday in an epic cup tie with the FA Cup


President as well. It's been a wonderful journey and we are


delighted to be here. Certainly not over yet at all. Jason first of all,


thank you to your school because you are a schoolteacher and had to get


off work early to come here tonight? Yes, the head was very obliging and


the kids are all watching. Thank you for having me. Not a problem. How


good is it for Spennymoor town to be here? 2-0 up against Telford last


year, threw it away, conceded two in the last two minutes and you start


to think it's not going to be the same again but we are down to ten


men against Chorley for 60 minutes and we started to believe it


wouldn't happen again, but to be finally here in a first round draw


is what dreams are made of. Andy you are already celebrating because it's


the 50th anniversary of Westfields so this is the icing on the cake


isn't it, to have a special moment like this? We planned a 50th


anniversary year but this wasn't on the agenda. It's fantastic for us.


It started in 1966, I was only 16, a group of lads from the Westfields


area of herred for, we were in awe of England winning the World Cup,


Bob Moore and the others, we went out and bought the kit and we are


doing a remarkable job and it's really, you know, as you say, the


icing on the cake. It was never written in the script. Does this


bring memories back for you, Kevin? Yes, I played against Altrincham for


Preston North End. It's great moments for the professional clubs


but of course for the non-league sides, it means a lot to them seeing


who they are going to get in the draw.


There are ten former winners in the draw,


including Bolton, Coventry, Portsmouth and Sheffield United.


And 8 teams who play in the 7th tier or lower,


Chesham United who made the 2nd round last season before


Stourbridge also got as far as the 2nd round last season.


Jason's Spennymoor Town, ball number 58.


Westfields, in the draw for the 1st time, ball number 62.


And a number of teams are in the draw but need


to win their replays Curzon Ashton, Stamford, Harrow Borough,


Giant-killers Sutton United who famously knocked out Covemtry


We went to Lincoln's Ashby Avenue on Saturday. This is what happened.


There is a lot of excitement here. There are loads of fans here for a


start, more than ever before. This is something that we dream of at


this place. We are a typical non-league club, work hard


behind-the-scenes, work hard on the pitch, to be here is the ultimate


for us. We are in the fourth qualifying round of the FA Cup, the


biggest trophy in the world. Fantastic. United go into this as


the underdogs. An exciting cup tie... Five years ago, this club was


in the doldrums. If it all stops today we have done really well and


it's testament to the lads. Don't get many chances to get to the first


round, probably my only chance and I'll to all I can to get there. All


the guys that help out are all volunteers sohopefully we can go out


today and get the win and much-needed money in the bank as


well. If you brought Barcelona down today, they'd probably play and we


wouldn't be scared. Spennymoor are a league above. It's going to be tough


but we have a great chance. We'd just like to be in the game proper.


With a new chairman, it's something that we have aspired to do. One team


always does well in the north-east, usually Blythe, so hopefully we can


emulate that this year. Just go and enjoy yourselves, yes.


Play the game, not the occasion. A few plumbers, a few lads who work in


the building trade. It's tough, non-league, we just want a bit of


quality and magic Suppose, to win it for us. Armstrong, taken down. It's


a penalty kick... Joseph Tate gives Spennymoor the


lead. The penalty low into the bottom corner. Spennymoor are one up


here. Ball over the top of the Lincoln United defence. Dawson


scores! Spennymoor are 2-0 up here now.


Here comes the corner from the right hand side. Armstrong is there and he


scores! Buries the header into the bottom right hand corer and that


must see Spennymoor through to the next round. Feels surreal. We have


had many attempts, failed at the final hurdle, but today I thought we


were excellent from start to finish and thoroughly deserved to win.


From where they have come from, they can hold their heads up high in the


sky and say yes, we have done well. Delighted for the club. They deserve


it. Whoever we get it's a buzz. Jason, you certainly seemed to enjoy


that as a group of players. What were your emotions like on Saturday?


Relief, you know. I know what the chairman is like, he's put a lot of


time and effort in. He joined the club seven years ago and puts


pressure on us. He had expectations that we could go through being the


favourite. It added a bit more extra fromsure, to get through was more


relief than delight until the following day when it sunk in.


Slightly different for Westfields because you weren't expected to win


and to get through to this stage, so how much belief was there in the


club that you could do it? We've gone over each hurdle as it's


happened and it started on August 6th and we've just kept going. On


Saturday, I thought at times the play, felt, this is as far as it


will get and, as the game went on, it got better. There was 714 there.


It was wonderful. When we got the winning goal with three minutes to


go, everybody just took off, you know, it was amazing. The referee


plays it, you know, as neigh do, seven minutes extra time, we were


biting nails but when the whistle blew it was an amazing historic time


for the club. The 50th anniversary as well so it's the icing on the


cake, a wonderful occasion. We are getting close to the draw, who do


you want? Sheffield United, Bradford, Bolton or Hartlepool for


me. Andy? Choice of two because the lads and my brother supports


Blackpool by the bay but Gary Bowyer, the Blackpool manager is an


ex-Westfield player, so it would be lovely to play Blackpool home or


away. The lads, some want to go to Portsmouth, so it would be great to


go to Portsmouth. I think for what we are, we'll go anywhere, you know,


the FA Cup is an occasion and we are just delighted to be in it.


It's now time for the FA Cup first-round draw,


Hello and welcome to the draw for the first round of the Emirates FA


Cup. We've already had six qualifying rounds to get us to this


point and 39 non-league clubs are still involved in the competition.


They'll be joined in the hat by the 48 teams from League One and League


Two. Tonight's draw will be made by two men who've both played in cup


winning sides, Paul Ince and David James. Paul, you won it in 1990 and


1994 with Man United. What are your memories? Just great days out. It's


always been any schoolboy or kids' dreams to play in the FA Cup Final


itself. To play in two finals, the first was great, it was my first


time I joined Manchester United so to win the Cup Final in my first


year at Manchester United was great, then to beat Chelsea four years down


the line. It's a great experience. Day individual you were in goal when


Pompey won it for the second time. What did that victory in 2008 mean


for you and Portsmouth? For me, it meant winning the FA Cup for the


third time with Arsenal, defeated twice. For Portsmouth, it was a


celebration, not only for the sport as a club but a celebration of the


whole community which was a magical event. Absolutely magical day for


Pompey fans. Believe it or not, there are ten former winners in


tonight's draw. Sheffield United and Bolton have both been successful


four times, pores mouth have won it twice. Notts County, Bradford City,


Charlton Athletic, Blackpool, Coventry City and of course


Wimbledon, have also won it previously -- Portsmouth. Keep an


eye open for Westfield, the lowest ranking team left in the


competition. They are based in Hereford and play in the Midland


division, they have won six games already to get to this point. There


are 40 ties to be drawn. So let's make a start. Paul Ince is going to


draw the home teams. David James the away teams. Paul, you are going to


put the balls in the hat for us first of all. Do you trust David? I


did ask him but he said he'd drop 'em all so...

Northampton against Harrow Borough or Margate and then the two in the

from the National North, that replay will take place tonight. MK Dons


from League 1, that is where Spennymoor will have to go for the

League South against Carlisle. Bolton in the first round for the


first time since 93 after their relegation last season. They play


Grimsby. Morecambe up against Coventry, the winners from 1987. Why


talks -- Whitehawk have Stourbridge who made it around to last season


and the winners from 1947, Charlton, play a top ranked team Scunthorpe in


the competition. That is the FA Cup first round. What


are your thoughts? Delighted we are at home, six home draws on the


bounce now. We will relive everything we did last Saturday and


Seve we can pull off another shock. It is possible. York City and Curzon


play the replay tonight so whoever gets through we shall have them


watched and do our homework and I'm sure Shaun Edwards and the players


will be as eagerly awaiting the winners of that type as we were


laced in last Saturday. I'm quietly confident, it's a good draw, it's at


home. Jason, you didn't get the home draw you are looking for, you have


League 1 MK Dons. That is a big challenge. Massive test but what an


occasion and stadium to go to. The reward for the hard work and


fantastic opportunity for the supporters to travel in numbers and


witnessed hopefully another piece of history. That would be a good game.


One for the purists! Good luck to both of you. What else jumps out,


Kevin? Leyton Orient, decent draw, the Southend - Millwall draw and


then looking down at Bury, AFC Wimbledon, Bolton at home to


Grimsby, these are the draws from the league point of view, Eastleigh


against Swindon, after last season, we would look at that one as well.


Some good draws. The FA Cup always has financial implications as well.


As the lowest league club in the competition what does it mean from


that respect? It's a great day out but there is that little bonus as


well. It is a huge bonus and we have earned a lot of money on the way so


far which will keep the club going, not just the first team but the


whole club, it is a lovely way of giving us a bonus that will keep us


going through the season and setting is up for next season. We will keep


living the dream of the magic of the FA Cup, it is a wonderful occasion,


the money has been an extra bonus, as you say, but just being in the FA


Cup alone without the money is a fantastic occasion for Westfields


football club. We wish you the best. Don't forget, Mark Chapman will be


here tonight for Match of the Day 2. Mark will be joined by Martin Keown


and Kevin Kilbane for highlights of Liverpool v Manchester United


as well as all of yesterday's games. You can also hear that


Liverpool-Manchester United game on 5 live radio.
