Note:  The Darwen v Kidderminster and Middlesbrough Ironopolis v Blackburn First Round matches were ordered to be replayed after protests. Kidderminster must surely have wished that they had not been successful in their appeal for a replay because of the state of the pitch. Many of the Kidderminster team were unable to afford to travel to Darwen for the second match with others not completing the 90 minutes. Not surprisingly they lost 13-0.
