With the Shots out of the FA Cup and the FA Trophy, Terry Brown will ultimately be looking to secure a play-off spot – but with so many other clubs in the league in contention for one of the four places, the County Cup or even the Conference Cup could be all that supporters are left with at the end of the season.
Current holders Farnborough Town won't be defending their cup this season as they've already been knocked out of the competition – by Basingstoke Town.
Briefly: Andover FC.
Nickname: The Lions.
League: Jewson Wessex League.
