The draw for the Second Round of the IFA Cup took place last night at the exclusive location of South Mimms service station on the M25 where drawmasters Graham Kelly and Bert Millichip, er, I mean Dave Messenger and Vinnie White pulled the balls from the velvet bag, with the following results:
Hearts v Preston North End
Bury A v Millwall or Bury B (R1 tie being played 7th December)
Livingston OL v Manchester United
West Ham United v Stoke City
Rochdale v Southport
AFC Wimbledon A or Crawley Town (R1 tie being played 14th December) v Runcorn Linnets
Barnsley v St Johnstone
Livingston GS v West Bromwich Albion
The deadline for these games is Saturday 22nd February 2014. As always, concessions must be made by home teams to accommodate travelling teams. The IFA Cup takes priority over all regional cup competitions, with the only exception being a “proper” IFA fixture where the main teams are meeting in the afternoon.
Please bear in mind that the weather is likely to affect this round, so where possible please plan accordingly and have 3G surfaces available if necessary.
