It may not, for us, start until the 3rd round in January but the FA Cup is well underway for many.

The weekend just past saw the last qualifying round before the draw for the 1st round proper was made.

One tie that was particularly intriguing involved FC United who were battling with a former member of the Football League, Barrow, for a place in that first round draw.

FC United duly overcome Barrow, courtesy of a goal from Carlos Roca and were given their reward when the draw paired them with League one side Rochdale.

The draw could have been a little more favourable as Rochdale will prove to be formidable opposition having gained promotion last term.

But United FC, who were formed five years ago by supporters disenchanted with the Glazers takeover of will hold out hope that they can progress and I`ve no doubt they harbour dreams of a third round tie, in January, with the mighty Manchester United.

Now what an occasion that would be!
