The FA Vase Fifth Round draw is live on Talksport 2 at 1pm on Monday 8th January with Hellenic Premier Division sides Thatcham Town, Windsor and Bracknell Town all looking on to who they may draw.

The competition is at the last 16 stage, effectively three 90 minute fixtures from a Wembley Stadium final, although Bracknell must come through a tricky replay with Blackfield & Langley on Tuesday night at Larges Lane while there are three other ties that are awaiting an outcome.

From a travel perspective, a derby between any of the three Hellenic sides would be a huge crowd draw but equally there are potentially some long away days – although the the anticipated trip to Pontefract Collieries is off after the Yorkshire side lost 3-1 to 1874 Northwich.

So who’s in the draw and the numbers to look our for

The three key numbers in today’s draw are 10, 13 and 16. Here’s the full list:

  1. Newcastle Benfield OR Coleshill Town
  2. Bromsgrove Sporting
  3. Wolverhampton SC
  4. Marske United OR Hinckley
  5. 1874 Northwich
  6. Stockton Town
  7. Stourport Swifts
  8. Melksham Town
  9. Hamble Club
  10. Blackfield & Langley OR BRACKNELL TOWN
  11. Leighton Town
  12. Newport (IoW) OR Bradford Town
  13. WINDSOR
  14. Chichester City
  15. Tring Athletic
  16. THATCHAM TOWN

Who to avoid?

If any of our trio are hoping to continue in to the quarter and semi finals, Bet Victor have narrowed Marske United to 4-1 favourites and Bromsgrove Sporting are 6-1 second favourites in the outright odds and probably the sides to avoid.

Bracknell are 8-1 third favourites, down from 10-1 while Thatcham are 20/1 and Windsor 33/1.

As our man in the north Craig Kendall said though in a previous article, there simply are no easy ties at this stage of the competition.
