Apart from the 2-0 defeat to Gateshead in 2014 cited by Poll, the only other game with Gateshead I can recall was in January 1994 when we lost 2-0 at home in the FA Trophy (at the end of a terrible run of five straight defeats in that month after going top of the table). As for KenR's recollection, I wonder if we are thinking of Southport in 1997 in the Trophy? A 0-0 up at their place was followed by a 2-0 home defeat. They played in white that night and were very good indeed.

Doncaster?

Didn’t we draw up there and get lomped at home.
I think the kick off was delayed in the home match, and it finished at cat-squaling time.

Quite possibly all wrong.

When I saw yesterday’s draw, I first recalled the 2014 match which stays in my memory for non-football reasons. I also knew we’d played them before at The Grove and been outplayed but wasn’t sure when that was. The draw away and thumping at home, getting referred to, I thought was either Doncaster or Southport. I’d got Andy Bradley scoring to earn a replay and losing it 3-7 with Luke Yates scoring (wrong on three counts!!) after a late arrival. (I also think Weymouth once arrived late at The Grove and ko was 8.30 with snowflakes falling?) Here’s Poll’s brief summary of the Donny replay https://www.yeltzland.net/2000/01/15/FA ... DONNY.html
When we played Gateshead on 22 Jan 1994 it was in Paul Joinson’s second spell with us and during that season Andy Bradley made 51 consecutive appearances. We’d ended 1993 on a run of only 1 defeat out of 11 matches in all competitions but January 1994 brought a tough set of fixtures and we didn’t win any of them until Malcolm Hazelwood & Kevin Harrison scored in a 2-0 win at Worcester in front of 1,448 fans on the last day of that month : Martin, Abell, Bradley, Wood, Clark, Jones, Hazelwood, Harrison, Robinson, Joinson, Massey. Subs Wright and Marsh. 1/1/94 lost 0 1 h Moor Green, 8/1/94 a Villa 0 2 BSC (at Bodymoor Heath?), 15/1/94 h Farnborough 2-3, 18/1/94 a Cheltenham 1-3 (I think Malcolm had to go in goal and behind his goal was a Hazelwood advertising board), 22/1/94 h Gateshead 0-2, 29/1/74 Trowbridge h 1-1.
And finally …… Luke Yates played for us in the previous season 1992/93 and returned in 1997/98. He did score in another BSC match against the Villa. After a 0-0 draw, we won the replay 7-4.
I'm going for a lie down ...... 🤔

Excellent stats as always Chas! I was sure we'd played the Heed at home and been well outclassed but I think I'm mixing that game and the Doncaster game in together as that was the replay. Or possibly Southport. We got well outclassed in that one as well if I remember. Cheers for sorting that LLL. ;D

Worth noting that Snapper played in that FA Trophy game against Gateshead in 1994.

As for the Southport/Doncaster debate, I'm pretty sure it was Southport who turned us over (even though only 0-2) in January 1997. We were unlucky in the Doncaster FA Trophy replay in January 2000 as Crispy gave us a 2-1 lead in extra time before Donny somehow came back to win 3-2. It was getting on for 11pm when Donny scored their winner - I wonder if there's ever been a goal so late in the day at the Grove?

We were never going to get a nice easy tie at this point of the competition. The good news it’s at home and, even though they are step 2, we have nothing to fear.

At worst, we bow out with no shame in our cup exploits. We’ve progressed through 3 rounds in the Cup and 4 rounds in the Trophy and that’s a great return. Nothing to lose now.
And a point that is often missed is that we were last man standing from our division in the FACup, and as Barton are currently losing 2 0 if it stays that we we are last man in the trophy ... not a bad achievement ;D

I recall us playing Farnborough in the FA Cup First Round back in the early nineties. We drew 2-2 at home and then got thumped 4-0 in the replay. If I remember correctly Tony Rowe made a couple of absolute howlers in the replay.

True. That replay was down there though. Was that Sean Flynn's last game for us? God knows why that just came into my head.

It most definitely was. 26th November 1991, I missed Physics to go to that game. And I don't recall Tony Rowe's howlers (there were so many, who could!!!) but I do remember Alan Attwood running past 5 Farnborough players, and still being in the same part of the middle of the pitch. Happy days. And didn't it rain!!!!

(It took us till February 1992 to win a league game again after the cup!)

I saw the replay but also I think the BBC highlight cameras were there and Tony Rowe’s howlers were shown to the nation.
Farnborough had a striker, Simon Read (?), at the time and he may have scored a hat-trick against us. I think their fanzine was somehow named after him.
