Mixed news on Cup draws

Last updated : 18 November 2002 By Andy Burton
On Saturday morning, on Sky Sports Soccer AM, the Bournemouth Fans Of The Week witnessed AFC Bournemouth being drawn at home to Cardiff City in the Southern Area Quarter Finals.

While on Sunday afternoon, after the boring 0-0 between Forest Green Rovers and Exeter City, AFC Bournemouth were drawn against either Hartlepool United ot Southend United (away) for the FA Cup Second Round. Southend and Hartlepool drew 1-1 at Roots Hall on Saturday and have to replay on November 26th.

Ironic that it could be 2 visits to Roots Hall in 2 weeks, if the Essex CLub get through, and an early chance for revenge for Hartlepool if they succeed given the 2-1 defeat on Sky Sports a few weeks ago. The winners of the Second Round match net £30k in prize money as well a the chance of a big name draw in the Third Round.
