Saints v Cherries Could We Make It Four?
There is a possibility that our friendly neighbours the Cherries could be drawn against us which would make it four games against each other this season.
After waiting for so long to meet in competition I have a funny feeling that fate could be having a sly laugh as we wait to see who our opponents will be.
The choices for the draw in the Southern section West are, Bournemouth, Aldershot, Exeter, Oxford, Swindon, Torquay and Yeovil. Then it is a case of first out of the hat is at home.
Aldershot, Oxford and Torquay are Division Two sides but as we found out last season with Torquay, that will not make it easy if we draw one of them.
Swindon beat us 1-0 home and away last season and will be a tough opponent. Exeter also didn't roll over for us last season and then we have Bournemouth.
I wonder what odds the bookies will offer for us to be paired together yet again this season. As I said earlier it could be about to happen.
Funnier things have been known to happen.
