Eight away draws for Reds in FA Cup first round since 1993
Reds have a decent record in the first round of the FA Cup, despite being drawn away from home at this stage of the competition EIGHT times in the last 21 years.
The last time Crawley had a home game in the first round was in November 1991 when a packed Town Mead saw Reds defeat Football League opposition for the first time in our history when
Northampton Town were beaten 4-2.
Since then we’ve been away every time yet still managed to progress six times to the second round.
In the last four years we have gone to Guiseley, Bury, Met Police and Hednesford and won on every occasion.
In fact, it is 11 years since we last bowed out of the competition at this stage at Telford in 2003, when Reds led 2-0 only to lose 3-2 to the Conference side.
Here’s the record in the first round since 1993. Let’s hope it continues on Saturday when we go to Yeovil!
