Start with, say, 32 balls of the most northerly clubs, then when you get down to 8, throw in the next 24 and so on.

That's simply not true.

If its not, then there is occasionally some wierd stuff that goes on. The early rounds clearly are fixed in a way that regionalises fixtures into at least four groupings. Then you get the odd wierd one where, say, Merthyr get to play Portchester away.
I notice that you don't come up with an alternative suggestion for the process.

You every now and then get clubs drawn together who are at the extremes of the boundaries. You could argue that both Merthyr and Portchester are in the south west quarter of the country.

The daw is split into several regional sections at the extra preliminary round, and these sections get larger right until it goes national at round 1. Your suggestion of them "throwing in" the next lot of clubs basically makes a mockery of the draw and any regionalisation.

Norwich United got Stamford away, instead

I can still remember Jeff Stelling featuring one on Sky Sports as it was happening! It was away at Carlisle, and guess what? We lost 3 or 4 nil!

Not quite. It was 4-2, with Carlisle scoring their 4th late on after we had sent goalkeeper Michel Kuipers up for a corner in an attempt to earn a point. It was suspicious as a lot of bets were placed in Asia on Carlisle winning by 2 goals...

They are working on the 3G pitch at the moment, too. The south stand isn't just a stand, it's connected to the sports hall.
