Who does everyone want then and who does everyone think we'll get?

I don't mind who we get if we're at home but would obviously rather avoid the likes of Chesterfield, Barnet, etc.

We've had a ton of long away trips already this season so would rather avoid one of the long away ones if possible. Don't mind if we get a new team down South somewhere though.

Just please not Horsham, Aldershot or Eastleigh. Sick of the sight of all 3 of them.

Bognor Regis Town or South Park Reigate will do. But I bet we get another national league team

Frome away jumps off the page as a cracking little away ground and lovely place

Don't want Horsham or Gateshead as I have a feeling they'd turn us over

Apparently it's fully national (not regional) so could even get Blyth Spartans away - 321 miles each way

Shame we lost Farnborough, Basingstoke and Havant - would have quite fancied a trip to any of those.

Slough Town, Bognor/South Park or Whitehawk away for me. City of Liverpool at home would be interesting.

I'll add Hereford into the mix - home or away.

Oooh yes Hereford away would be magnificent in terms of bucket list grounds I want to visit one day

City of Liverpool down here would be interesting indeed - I could imagine them getting their bedsheets ready to make up banners about Tories already!

Forgotten about Hereford. Never been there for football.

Looks like the draw is split between North and South for this round now

@steve1966 It's an absolute old school cracker. Up there with Aldershot as one of the best - imo.

Club and Thomas Feaheny on twitter were saying it was one single draw yesterday, but now Ollie Bayliss and Feaheny are saying its regional!

Would still like Frome (or Torquay) away, but it saves knackering my car with a trip to Blyth!!

We are south ball 12

Hereford somehow are classed as South (despite being a NLN club) - South ball 17

@dorking-eagle Damn - no chance of City of Liverpool then. Wonder when it goes national, can't remember what happened last year...

@adeb Not sure I can take a 4th game against Horsham in 2023. We played terrible in the first 3...

Final prediction for me is Hampton & Richmond at home.

Ade - it must have been R4 last season that it went totally National, because Southend got Darlington and Maidstone got Notts County (according to Wikipedia)
