It would have been the same

One of the joys of the FA Cup draw is that you know who you would have got because the ball number is the same as the tie number in the previous round - or whatever it would have been when the teams enter come in (teams entering are always the first in numbering).

The 32 tie winners from the fourth qualifying round will be numbered from 49 in the first round draw. Dorchester (ball 42, because the Hendon match had been tie 18) v Bristol Rovers (ball 7) is tie 14, so the winner will be ball 62.

Arsenal will be No.1 in the third round draw until AFC Wimbledon (or any other AFC team), Aldershot, Alfreton or Altrincham get into the Championship.
