Check out the Uefa site, Blues. There's a breakdown of where all the teams participating in the tournament apart from the Champions League drop outs are from. A three letter code represents the country of origin. teh team really could be embarking on a nasty trip or two: http://www.uefa.com/competitions/uefacup/news/kind=1/newsid=727066.html

I believe the second qual. round draw is actually on the 1st of August, Tudor, after this round is completed. And as I said on one of Johnny's articles, the first few rounds are seeded and the qualifying rounds are grouped into three groups geographically, so there are only fourteen teams we could actually be drawn against in the 1st qual.

The first and second qualifying rounds are drawn on Tuesday 1 July. Check www.uefa.com for details. Apologies for the Glentoran mistake.

I wasn't criticising, Tudor, my comment(s) were said in good humour I assure you. I just noted that one of the few teams you thought you knew, you got wrong. Apologies for the confusion. And the uefa site appears to say that the 2nd qual. draw is on the 1st of August, but I don't mind either way. One round at a time for me.
