Today, Monday, shortly after 1pm


The semi-finals draw takes place live on the Ray Stubbs Show on talkSPORT 2.

The station has confirmed reporter Tony Incenzo, a non-league aficionado, and former Arsenal player and broadcaster Adrian Clarke will be their guests on hand to help.


Four teams remain, and three of those progressed after winning away from home at the weekend.

Stockton Town, who ended the run of Windsor, are the exception.

A 2-0 victory for them means there are two teams from the Northern League still standing.

Bookmakers’ favourites Marske United, who triumphed 3-0 at Bracknell Town, are the other.

Thatcham Town, from the Hellenic League’s top-flight, squeezed past their hosts Melksham Town to reserve their spot at the next stage.

The line-up is of course completed by 1874 Northwich, who eliminated Leighton Town by the same single-goal margin.

Here are the draw numbers:

1 Marske United
Thatcham Town
Stockton Town 
1874 Northwich

Marske are favourites at 5/4, with fellow Northern League side Stockton 9/4.

Thatcham are considered outsiders at 5/1.
