FA Cup first round draw: Hyde United (eighth tier) host MK Dons

  7:28PM And that's the draw The excitement is over! No more balls will be drawn! Morecambe vs Hartlepool is pretty good, Doncaster will visit either East Thurrock or Ebsfleet. Hyde vs MK Dons is a brilliant tie for the minnows. I was really hoping for a Slough vs Swindon draw, purely for Office quotes.  7:25PM Eighth tier Hyde will play MK Dons! The crowd goes wild in the BBC studio as the draw is announced. That's the big club the players wanted. 7:24PM Lads, can we please have some music Or something. This draw is not one of the most exciting things I've ever seen on television. That Liverpool vs Man Utd game on Saturday was more entertaining. 7:21PM AFC Wimbledon vs Lincoln City AFC Wimbledon are one of the clubs to have benefited immensely from TV money brought by the FA Cup and they are drawn against Lincoln City.  7:19PM Some more fixtures for you Peterborough Utd v Tranmere Cambridge Utd v Sutton Utd Forest Green Rovers v Macclesfield Town AFC Fylde v Kidderminster Harriers Luton v Portsmouth Shrewsbury v Aldershot Hereford v AFC Telford Utd Guiseley v Accrington Stanley Blackburn Rovers v Barnet 7:16PM No huge match ups so far Bradford City v Chesterfield Port Vale v Oxford Utd Newport County v Walsall Morecambe v Hartlepool Utd 7:14PM And it's set of balls number eight And Lancelot is the FA Cup draw machine for tonight. What a hilarious National Lottery joke. And the first fixture is Stevenage vs Nantwich or Kettering. IT'S ALL KICKING OFF NOW, CLIVE. 7:12PM Your Davids, your Goliaths Hyde, Heybridge Swifts and Ossett Town are the lowest ranked teams in the competition, with all three occupying the eighth tier of English football.  7:10PM David Sharpe The Wigan chairman, grandson of Dave Whelan, fancies Wigan's chances this season. And now it's time for the draw!   7:05PM Who do the small teams want to get in the draw? According to a couple of Hyde football staff (manager and player), the management want to play against a team they can probably beat whereas the players want to draw Blackburn or Charlton - one of the 'big' clubs. Hyde actually own the record for biggest defeat in the FA Cup. A 26-0 hiding (see what I did) by Preston North End. 7:00PM The live coverage begins! Here we go. The draw is being held at Hyde United's ground. Look how cool their sun was earlier: Red sun today. FA Cup draw at Hyde United. Is that an omen. #EmiratesFACuppic.twitter.com/LoZ27mZjKW— Hyde United FC (@hydeunited) October 16, 2017   6:47PM The difference the FA Cup actually makes I wrote this in January about just how much an FA Cup run is worth to a small club. It turns out the answer is everything. The FA awards a prize of £1.8million to the winners of the competition, the kind of short-change a Champions League club might use as a sweetener for a promising youth prospect’s signing-on fee.

The prize for qualifying for the second round was £27,000, in addition to £18,000 earned from the first round. Those sucker-punch goals prevented a windfall of £67,500 for making it to third round.

Manchester United great Scholes interviewed for Oldham job

Paul Scholes has spoken to League One club Oldham Athletic over becoming their new manager, Omnisport understands.

Paul Scholes holds talks over Oldham Athletic manager's job

Paul Scholes has become the latest high profile former player to hold talks with Oldham over the vacant manager’s job at Boundary Park. The former Manchester United and England midfielder, who is a life-long Oldham fan and attends matches, was interviewed by the League One club on Wednesday morning. Scholes turned down the chance to become Oldham manager in 2015 in the belief the timing was not right but chairman, Simon Corney, has claimed publicly in the past that he believes the 42-year-old will manage the club “one day”. Corney and Scholes remain in regular contact and Scholes has held training sessions with the club’s youth teams in the past as he undertakes his Uefa coaching badges. Scholes briefly worked with United’s Under-19 team in 2013/14 and temporarily joined the club’s backroom staff when Ryan Giggs replaced David Moyes as first team manager on an interim basis that season. Most of Scholes’s time at present is taken up as a media pundit for BT Sport and as co-owner of non-league Salford City. Scholes worked briefly as a coach at Man Utd Credit: Action Images Oldham have been without a manager since the departure of John Sheridan on Sept. 25 and have also held talks with Clarence Seedorf, the former Real Madrid, AC Milan and Ajax midfielder who won four European Cups as a player, and has had short-lived managerial stints at Milan and Shenzhen FC in China. Seedorf, though, is no longer thought to be in the running. Richie Wellens, another former United midfielder, has impressed club officials since being placed in temporary charge following Sheridan’s exit with three successive wins and could yet get the job on a permanent basis. The prospect of a high profile figure such as Scholes, who lives close to the town, taking charge at Oldham could yet be dependent on proposed new investment in the club. Clarence Seedorf was also interviewed but is understood to no longer be in the running Credit: Getty images Speaking about Scholes two years ago, Corney said: “We speak on a regular basis and Paul occasionally comes down and does training sessions. He’s a friend of the club. We know what Paul’s all about, he’s very low-key, he doesn’t make a big deal about things. He turns up at the games – never turns up at the directors’ box – he turns up with his two lads, flat cap down and you wouldn’t even know he was there. “I’d love to have him on board but it’s difficult. Again, you have to ask would Oldham be the right club for somebody like Paul? It’s not just about us wanting Paul, it’s also would it be the right thing for him? I think … that one day he will come and manage the club but it’s all about timing with him.”

Most of Scholes’s time at present is taken up as a media pundit for BT Sport and as co-owner of non-league Salford City. Scholes worked briefly as a coach at Man Utd Credit: Action Images Oldham have been without a manager since the departure of John Sheridan on Sept. 25 and have also held talks with Clarence Seedorf, the former Real Madrid, AC Milan and Ajax midfielder who won four European Cups as a player, and has had short-lived managerial stints at Milan and Shenzhen FC in China. Seedorf, though, is no longer thought to be in the running. Richie Wellens, another former United midfielder, has impressed club officials since being placed in temporary charge following Sheridan’s exit with three successive wins and could yet get the job on a permanent basis. The prospect of a high profile figure such as Scholes, who lives close to the town, taking charge at Oldham could yet be dependent on proposed new investment in the club. Clarence Seedorf was also interviewed but is understood to no longer be in the running Credit: Getty images Speaking about Scholes two years ago, Corney said: “We speak on a regular basis and Paul occasionally comes down and does training sessions. He’s a friend of the club. We know what Paul’s all about, he’s very low-key, he doesn’t make a big deal about things. He turns up at the games – never turns up at the directors’ box – he turns up with his two lads, flat cap down and you wouldn’t even know he was there. “I’d love to have him on board but it’s difficult. Again, you have to ask would Oldham be the right club for somebody like Paul? It’s not just about us wanting Paul, it’s also would it be the right thing for him? I think … that one day he will come and manage the club but it’s all about timing with him.”

Paul Scholes holds talks over Oldham Athletic manager's job

Paul Scholes has become the latest high profile former player to hold talks with Oldham over the vacant manager’s job at Boundary Park. The former Manchester United and England midfielder, who is a life-long Oldham fan and attends matches, was interviewed by the League One club on Wednesday morning. Scholes turned down the chance to become Oldham manager in 2015 in the belief the timing was not right but chairman, Simon Corney, has claimed publicly in the past that he believes the 42-year-old will manage the club “one day”. Corney and Scholes remain in regular contact and Scholes has held training sessions with the club’s youth teams in the past as he undertakes his Uefa coaching badges.
