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

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


Of the remaining teams, 1874 Northwich are the only representative from the North West Counties League.

They will be ball number five.

The Northern League can still boast of having two clubs in the competition; bookmakers’ favourites Marske United and Stockton Town.

However the Hellenic League has three.

Bracknell Town ended the run of Coleshill Town after scoring three goals during extra-time to record a 4-2 win, while Thatcham Town are through as well after surprising Bromsgrove Sporting.

Windsor, who proved too strong for Hamble Club, complete that trio.

Melksham Town, of the Western League’s top-flight, scored twice during the early stages to leave their guests Tring Athletic with too much to do.

Meanwhile the remaining fifth-round tie, between Wolverhampton Sporting and Leighton Town, was postponed and will be played on Saturday.

1874 Northwich progressed to the competition’s quarter-finals for the first time in the club’s short history following a 1-0 win against Chichester City, from the Southern Combination League, on Saturday.

Ryan Mitchell’s decisive goal arrived with only a minute remaining at Wincham Park, the defender timing his run perfectly to meet substitute Ryan Jackson’s corner.

Prize money

There is £4,125 up for grabs for those teams that progress to the last four of this season’s edition.

After seven wins to date, 1874 Northwich have already ensured they will bank £8,250 from this season’s edition.

They can add that to £10,925 earned this season by prevailing in four FA Cup ties.

What do the bookies think?

BetVictor rate 1874 Northwich as 5/1 – along with Stockton Town – to win the competition after Saturday’s victory.

Marske are favourites at 7/4, with Bracknell 4/1.
