    Good morning. I hope you don't mind someone from "the dark side" commenting on this thread.
    It's a strange FA Cup first round for all the clubs concerned and must be hugely disappointing for all the minnows that made this far. They play goodness knows how many qualifying games in the hope of drawing an EFL club in the first round thus boosting their finances and giving their players some excellent experiences. I feel gutted for them that they will have to play in empty grounds. That's not a comment on the governments decision one way or the other, I'm just sorry that these players will be missing out.
    Tough draw for the only Welsh club in at this stage.
    Hope you're all keeping well and safe.
