FA Cup Draw

The draw for the first round qualifying of The Emirates FA Cup has been made at Wembley.

The winners of the tie between Atherton Collieries and Witton Albion will host Evo-Stik Premier Division side Buxton.

With the preliminary round scheduled for the coming weekend, all clubs involved will now know where their next path in the competition will lead them.
Clubs from Step 3 of the National League System enter the competition at this stage, so they will await the results from this weekend's fixtures. This year, the first round qualifying draw was made prior to the preliminary round in order to assist clubs in their scheduling plans ahead of a busy September for many.
