    Here we go again, and thanks to Resurgam for reminding me.

    Rules: My rules every round, simples <laugh>

    I will keep the competition active, so the rules may or may not change each round, see me as VAR. If I cheat it will not be deliberate, but it might be fun....let the games begin;

    Pick TEN winning teams, 1 point for each correct team. DRAWS to REPLAYS do not count. It has to be a winner so chose wisely :)

    1 Ipswich Town v Lincoln City
    2 Oxford City v Solihull Moors
    3 Crawley Town v Scunthorpe United
    4 Harrogate Town v Portsmouth
    5 Colchester United v Coventry City
    6 Sunderland v Gillingham
    7 Dulwich Hamlet v Carlisle United
    8 Bolton Wanderers v Plymouth Argyle
    9 York City v Altrincham
    10 Wrexham v Rochdale
    11 Maidstone United v Torquay United
    12 Leyton Orient v Maldon & Tiptree
    13 Chippenham Town v Northampton Town
    14 Haringey Borough or Yeovil Town v Hartlepool United
    15 Cambridge United v Exeter City
    16 Stourbridge v Eastleigh
    17 Salford City v Burton Albion
    18 Forest Green Rovers v Billericay Town
    19 Bristol Rovers v Bromley
    20 Ebbsfleet United v Notts County
    21 Walsall v Darlington
    22 Nantwich Town v AFC Fylde
    23 AFC Wimbledon v Doncaster Rovers
    24 Hayes & Yeading v Oxford United
    25 Shrewsbury Town v Bradford City
    26 Grimsby Town v Newport County
    27 Gateshead v Oldham Athletic
    28 Mansfield Town v Chorley
    29 Dover Athletic v Southend United
    30 Tranmere Rovers v Wycombe Wanderers
    31 Carshalton Athletic v Boston United
    32 Cheltenham Town v Swindon Town
    33 Accrington Stanley v Crewe Alexandra
    34 Barnet v Fleetwood Town
    35 Macclesfield Town v Kingstonian
    36 Maidenhead United v Rotherham United
    37 Blackpool v Morecambe
    38 MK Dons v Port Vale
    39 Stevenage v Peterborough United

    I'm in hospital next week, so if I'm late updating the scores on the board, be patient <NoPunIntended>

    I should have offered a joker for double points <laugh>

    Maybe an idea for the next round.

    Just a reminder the object of the first round was only a WIN gives you a point. Any oversight by me please let me know and I will happily correct, otherwise the table is as follows;

    1. The Changing Man 7 points
    2. Allbluelenny 6
    2. Blyth Bucaneer 6
    2. The Gills Pegleg 6
    5. brb 5
    5. gioblues 5
    5. Resurgam 5 <cough>
    8. grumpygit 4
    8. mustyfrog 4
    10. geoffthegills 3

    I will apply the same rules for the second round, select 10 winning teams, with one minor change, in this round you get a JOKER, place the joker against one of your selected 10 which you think is certain to win, I will give you an additional 2 points if correct. So possibility of 12 points in the 2nd round to be had.

    Anyone is still welcome to join at this stage but obviously it will be harder to catch the scores already on the board.

    I will post the fixtures up, once the replays are all sorted.

    Same rules, select your 10 teams again, and highlight the word 'joker' next to the ONE team you are certain will win, and if they do, you receive an additional 2 points. I'm not sure if there are replays in this round, but a winning team only counts if the match is completed in this one game. But if extra time and penalties are in this one game, then that will count for the 'winning' team.
