Non-League obsessives MANarama can’t remember a start to the season like this!
Do we have to play cup games? That’s what a lot of fans of the BetVictor Southern League South Division One will be saying this weekend as the league hots up.
Paulton Rovers currently lead the way from Frome Town and Thatcham Town who are the only side still unbeaten this season in the division.
With the league campaign on the back burner for a little while longer, the FA Trophy comes into town and remarkably, we’ve got seven all-south ties.
Paulton have won their last six games in all competitions but opponents Willand Rovers know how to frustrate teams and have lost just once in their last five.
Bristol Manor Farm forced a replay against National League South Wealdstone last week and will head to Sholing with that in their minds.
Barnstaple host inform Thatcham while Basingstoke will look to build on their win against Highworth last time out against Cirencester who are winless in four.
Bideford fell victim to an impressive Frome Town when the sides met in the league a few weeks ago – can they avenge that defeat when they meet again on Saturday at Badgers Hill?
Elsewhere, Slimbridge will put their promotion ambitions on hold to entertain AFC Totton while Cinderford and Highworth do battle for a place in the next round.
Larkhall Athletic will be looking to start a run of consistent results and could start on their trip to Didcot Town who have been on the end of some huge score lines this season already.
While we have got you, why not do something really special this weekend….
