DRFC- Doncaster to be ball 16

DRFC- Doncaster to be ball 16

Doncaster Rovers will be ball number 16 when they enter the FA Cup at the Third Round stage for the first time in 50 years.

Rovers will be hoping to progress past the Third Round, something they haven`t done since 1985 when they lost in the Fourth Round at Everton.

The draw will be made by Ray Clemence and Sir Trevor Brooking after Sunday`s televised game around 2.15pm on ITV1.

The ties are due to be played over the weekend of January 3rd and 4th 2009.

The third round draw is one of the highlights of the football calendar when all the lower League sides get the chance to get drawn out against clubs from the Premiership and Championship.
