FA Cup first round draw

By James Gordon

The draw has been made for the FA Cup first round.

Five Northern Premier League clubs feature in the draw, although all face fourth qualifying round replays on Tuesday night to ensure their progress.

Marine, who famously made it to the third round proper last season, face a trip to EFL League Two side Harrogate Town if they can beat Wrexham.

Two NPL sides could potentially face each other in the first round. Both Buxton and Morpeth drew away at the weekend and face Kettering Town and York City respectively at home on Tuesday, with the prize a clash in the next round.

Pontefract Collieries, who celebrated a club record crowd against FC Halifax Town at the weekend, will host Maidenhead United if they can upset the odds away at The Shay on Tuesday.

NPL East Division side Marske United travel to Gateshead for their replay with a home tie against Altrincham at stake.

Up to six first round fixtures will be selected for live television coverage in the UK, with a possible further eight ties selected for other broadcast coverage.
