Why do non league embarrasments always happen now

Watched the FA Cup goals last night on Match of the Day.

Congratulations to Staines, what a day for them and I understand the distinct possibility of Sky Cameras for the replay, and also to Horsham who hammered Maidenhead 4-1 including a wonderful strike from Nigel Brake (35 or 40 yards?). We are very envious of them both.

Why is it though that First Round always brings some classic howlers that you wouldn’t see in a senior non league game more than once a season.  Workington’s keeper let in a stinker against Bury and the Histon defence got in a dreadful mess for one of Notts County’s goals.

Interesting also to see Hampton brushed aside by a Dagenham & Redbridge side incidentally containing Sam Sloma who played briefly for us a couple fo years ago.  Alan Devonshire says Hampton were the better side for the first hour, but Dagenham won 3-0!  Wealdstone to Wembley now rests with Dagenham & Redbridge.
