FFUK Milk Plate Round 1 results and Round 2 draw

6th November 2020: The FFUK Milk Plate is here!

As we have heavily trailed since the start of the season, the Milk Plate is a second-chance saloon for FFUK first round losers. Had a bad month in October? Unlucky enough to be drawn against a high-scorer for the month? This is the cup for you! Take Ross Smith for example. He came 4th in the whole of FFUK in October. A shoo-in, you’d think, for progression to Round 2 of the FFUK Cup. Not a bit of it! He ran into manager of the month James Downie and got knocked out.

Here’s how it works:

All the 128 losing managers from Round 1 of the FFUK Cup qualify for the Milk Plate and all those managers are seeded based on their October scores. Ross Smith is seed number 1 as he had the highest October score among Milk Plate qualifiers. This includes the 11 byes that were included in the FFUK Cup first round to round our numbers to 256. The byes scored zero, so the top 11 October scores will be drawn against a bye and get free passage to round 2 – the lucky losers!

In the FFUK Cup we do a random draw each month to determine ties, the same way it’s done for the FA Cup. The Milk Plate is different. Frankly, to avoid adding layers of admin, the draw for the Milk Plate is pre-determined based on the seedings. Managers are automatically allocated to brackets based on their seeds rather like the draw for Wimbledon. So in First Round proper, seed 1 plays seed 128, seed 2 plays seed 127 and so on. The draw is fixed such that, should they all progress that far, the top 4 seeds would not meet each other until the semi-finals (when seed 1 plays seed 4 and seed 2 plays seed 3).

Still with me?

What this means is that a manager qualifying for the Milk Plate can already see what route they have to the final. If a manager is in the opposite “half” of the draw, they can’t meet them until the final.
