Unfair advantage in FA Cup Can't Post or Reply Privately

Reviewing the draw for the 2nd Qualifying Round, it appears to be a big advantage to be in either zone 2 or 3:

Zone 1 - 14 step 6 sides (41.2%)
Zone 2 - 7 step 6 (20.6%)
Zone 3 - 14 step 6 (21.9%)
Zone 4 - 9 step 6 (32.1%)

Surely a random event like the Cup should be fairer to all teams. I'd like to see north/south from Q2 onwards:

North (zones 1 + 2) - 21 step 6 (30.9%)
South (zones 3 + 4) - 23 step 6 (25%)

Not perfect but a good deal better...



2019/20 season: 21 competitive games
(13 NPL SE, 2 FA Cup, 3 FA Trophy, 1 League Cup, 1 Lincs Cup, 1 FA Youth Cup)

Total goals: 85 (4.0 per game)
Most: 9 (Cleethorpes Town 5 Loughborough Dynamo 4 - 31/8/19)

Last 0-0: Ilkeston Town v Cleethorpes Town (Northern Premier League SE - 17/8/19)
(Current run: 20)

New grounds: 3 (Latest: Sutton Coldfield Town)

Where are you getting those figures from? As far as I know Bodmin Town are the only Step 6 side through so far?

I think that should be level 6, Conference N+S

With the advantage being in zones 2&4



Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

Sorry - yes, level 6!

However, the advantage is very much with zones 2 & 3.

I looked at the actual numbers not the percentages
