28 October 2007 : Glovers Get Familiar Cup Draw
Yeovil Town were drawn away to Torquay United in the First Round of the FA Cup yesterday. The Gulls of course have spent most of their time in a higher position in the pyramid than the Glovers, and in 1992, the two clubs met in the FA Cup with Torquay the Football League side and the Glovers as the Conference side, with Steve Rutter's side gaining an extraordinary 5-2 win. They will now meet at Plainmoor 15 years later with the roles reversed.

The Gulls were relegated from the Football League at the end of last season, but have shown strong intent to bounce straight back at the first attempt, and currently top the Conference National division. Glovers winger Ishmael Welsh will have divided loyalties; he is currently on a season-long loan down at Plainmoor and played in Torquay's 2-0 win over non-league minnows Bath City yesterday at Twerton Park. It would be a surprise if Ishmael was granted permission to play against his parent club.

The matches will be played across the weekend of November 9th, 10th and 11th. There will be two live matches selected for BBC and Sky Sports. Sky's offering will be broadcast on Friday, November 9th (7.45 pm) whilst the BBC will broadcast their live game on Sunday, November 11th, with a 3.15 pm kick-off. However, there is a second reason why the Glovers may find themselves not playing on a Saturday afternoon - both Exeter City and Plymouth Argyle have home matches that weekend and therefore policing resources may be stretched.

Darlington v Northampton Town
