BUFC must take this tournament seriously - ANY club from steps 1 & 2 that do are likely to make, at least, the quarter finals. So many clubs treat this competition as a "throw-away" cup.
Saying that, I am a bit surprised that in 2021 that this trophy has survived and has not gone the same way as the Texaco, Watney, Anglo-Scottish, Various Non-League KO cups, etc. Still a valid path to Wembley glory!

We certainly looked like we were taking it seriously on Saturday? From team selection to fantastic effort and performance level? (As confirmed by the very disappointed Kidderminster manager)?

Morpeth are halfway down the league below, but they had 3pts from 8 games and since have taken 22 from 11. Last lost vs York in the fa Cup....
Won all 3 ties so far on pens too!
Their ground has a newly laid 3g pitch

Morpeth have a number of experienced 30+ players and are not to be taken lightly, particularly in a 1 off game with no extra time.
United we stand..................

Morpeth are about on a par with Atherton Collieries and I can't ever see them beating Boston United...
