I don't know that I have such a problem with the exemption system, it is what it is and probably forever shall be.

I have no idea how the draws work, however I find it very difficult to believe that a straight draw would lead us to play a fellow Ryman Premier side in 9 of the past 10 seasons including this. (The exception was playing Lowestoft Town at home in 2009/10).

Bury, Cray, Leiston, Canvey Island, Margate, AFC Wimbledon, Harrow Borough, Fisher Athletic, Ramsgate

I enjoy waiting for the FA Cup draw. I hate waiting for the FA Trophy draw because we inevitably have to schlep our way around the M25 to play a side in our own division. There's little attraction to be had in that as a fan to be quite honest.

For the record, assuming we stay in the Ryman Premier next season, I fully expect to be drawn away to Witham Town at the first hurdle of the Trophy.
