    Charlton @ home in Round 2 ..... Financially, it couldn't have been better.....
    ..... next out of the 'bag' was Evans ( well- Stevenage ) - and we avoided Aldershot and Maidstone.

    .... have to feel sorry for Ramsgate - they have AFC Wimbledon Away - but - their ball was actually in the hand of the person 'drawing' the balls - before she threw it away and picked up the Wombles ball.

    I'm creating myself a basic spreadsheet to try and make it easier to total, so then just need to chuck the scores in to it - we are waiting on replays anyway so no rush.

    gioblues and Patchy70 take the lead after round one, having both only got one prediction wrong (Lincoln City and Swindon respectively). Everyone barring albluelenny got both jokers correctly placed on winners, Lenny only missed out through posting a late selection on Barnsley, sorry my friend. Lots of people chasing in 3rd place and only one person propping up the foot of the table, I'll mention no names, but great seeing everyone competitive.

    The table layout don't look great, but sure it will look better once more columns are added to it, as we progress.

    Perhaps we could do without the 'Goals For' column to make the League 2 table look better ..... pretty soon we might also have to consider the ' Lost ' column.

    Barnsley have been thrown out so it will be Sutton V Horsham.

    Thank you geoffthegills. <ok>

    I will replace Barnsley with Horsham in the listing. @gioblues & @allbluelenny you may wish to edit your Barnsley prediction.

    For the first round I will leave the points as they were, if anyone objects please post your reason in the thread.

    What a scenario with Barnsley. Great for Horsham to have another league club and a winnable game at that. Imagine them getting through and the potential of a PL team in the 3rd Round would be excellent for them.
