FA Cup: First Qualifying Round
Tilbury v Leverstock Green or Aylesbury United
Thurrock v Harlow Town
Hertford Town v Grays Athletic
THE draw has been confirmed for the first round qualifying of this season’s Emirates FA Cup.
The 72 teams from level seven of the English football pyramid – the top flights of the Northern Premier League, Southern League and Isthmian League – enter at this stage.
They’re joined by the 160 victors from the preliminary round, which was played out across the weekend, to set up the 232 ties to be played on Saturday 2 September.
The victorious sides will each receive £3,000 from the Emirates FA Cup prize fund and will earn a place in the draw for the second round qualifying, where they’ll be joined by teams from the National League North and National League South.
