This is how fans reacted to the 23/24 FA Cup Third Round draw…

@potts1_m: Cracking 3rd round draw. What the FA cup is all about a Premier League colossus having to visit a lower league local rival who many people had forgotten even existed #sunnew

@MrGeorgeThorpe: Can’t look much further than Sunderland v Newcastle as highlighted of the FA Cup third round draw. Wigan v Man U after that

@aarons1308: Sunderland vs Newcastle! Offfft! Thats a Sunday Lunchtime KO 🤣 #facupdraw

@JamesBusterDoug: This season keeps on throwing up big games for Newcastle United..& now we have Sunderland away in the FA Cup… I’m quite sure it’ll make the telly….

@Liamcafc1991: Sunderland Newcastle. Old bill absolutely fuming #FACup #facupdraw

@RICH_SE16: No one can convince me the FA Cup draw isn’t fixed. Every local derby gets drawn but ours and when was the last time we had an half decent away draw not in London? #millwall

@Adamefc95: Sunderland v Newcastle and Arsenal v Liverpool in the 3rd round of the FA cup what a draw!

@mroberts_97: The TV companies must be loving that FA Cup 3rd round draw – Arsenal v Liverpool & Sunderland v Newcastle both out the hat!

@GMac1985: Great FA Cup draw @NUFC Thr Tyne–Wear derby, it has to be on the telly box

Bivesh Gurung was the hero as his goal 15 minutes from time sent sixth-tier Maidstone United through to the Third Round for the first time with a shock 2-1 victory against League Two Barrow.

Barrow went ahead through Ben Whitfield’s close-range finish in the 20th minute before Sam Corne got the equaliser 15 minutes later.

But Gurung, who was part of Crystal Palace’s academy, and has previously played for clubs in Norway and Sweden, made Maidstone dream of being drawn with a Premier League heavyweight in Sunday’s draw.

Meanwhile, we saw League Two’s Gillingham knock out league above Charlton Athletic 2-0, while it was the end of the road again for 7th-tier Horsham as they were defeated 3-0 at Sutton United.

National League side Barnet clinched a late 1-1 draw at League Two Newport County, and another surprise saw League Two Morecambe beat League One Wycombe Wanderers 2-0.

And a big scoreline on Saturday saw four-time winners Bolton Wanderers win 5-1 at home against Harrogate Town with Jón Daði Böðvarsson getting a first half hat-trick.
