FA Cup: Poole or Chippenham’s potential draws in the Third Qualifying round

With Poole in the hat for Today’s draw after holding Chippenham to a 1-1 draw, we take a look at the potential ties on offer.

Of course, Dolphins still have to negotitate a tough game away at Hardenhuish Park if they actually want to play any of these sides.

Despite no new sides entering the competition at this stage, the regions used in the draw will change – meaning there are more potential opponents for the Dolphins.

Poole can now be drawn with sides from across the whole of the south, rather than the south-west section they previously restricted to.

An offshore trip is possible, with Jersey Bulls still in the competition. The Channel Island side would have to overcome Sutton Common Rovers, and will have to do without home advantage in the replay, after an obscure FA rule meant the fixture had to be rearranged to Sutton’s Gander Green Lane.

Potential Opponents

Note: this list is based on educated guesses at best, and is not 100% accurate due to the fact some sides near the borders of regions may be moved to make up numbers. If a club is involved in a replay with a side not projected to be in the same region as Poole, they are listed with an asterix.
