By Ian Townsend

Only fourteen of our forty eight clubs face non-Pitching In Isthmian competition

The draw for the Third Qualifying Round of the FA Trophy was made this afternoon, with Pitching In Isthmian Premier sides entering for the first time- and in some cases, drawing each other.

We also have another eleven all-Isthmian ties, with only fourteen of our forty eight clubs playing non-Isthmian opposition.
