With 10 teams in the competition again this season, 6 of you will get byes and the other 4 will contest the other 2 places available in the quarter finals.
6 byes are determined based on last seasons performances, this means:
get byes for finishing in the top 4.
Usually the cup holder gets a bye too, but that was Maltese Matt who was demoted from the league for financial irregularities (i.e. no brown envelope!)
so I've awarded the final 2 byes to this season's rookie teams - Udit and Max
The 4 remaining manager's names - alphabetically Amirah, Marcus, Martin and Ste - went into the mythical hat, and weirdly came out in that order.
So the 1st round draw will feature:
Amirah v Marcus
Martin v Ste
Results will be based on your player's performances in the FA Cup 3rd round games next weekend.
(I'm sure you all know how it works by now, but any questions in here please)
