Fans have their say to the FA Cup First Round draw being made, see what they had to say below…

@kiera_walsallfc: Kings Lynn away I really hope we stuff them after what the way they behaved a few seasons ago when they was in the Southern League their chairman is an absolute w⚓.

@Ethanscfc1872: Bolton away what a draw cant wait for that! #FACup

@JLongshanks7: Daggers v Salford on tv then despite many a good draw e.g. Sudbury v Colchester and Banbury v Barrow. #FACup

@spoldham: Some box office ties in that first round draw! Non-league hat on: Bolton vs Stockport, AFC Sudbury vs Colchester United, Carlisle United vs Horsham, Portsmouth vs Harrow Borough, Banbury Utd vs Barrow, Wigan vs Solihull, Lincoln vs Bowers & Pitsea, King’s Lynn vs Walsall

AFC Sudbury-Colchester
Lincoln-Bowers & Pitsea
Pick of the draws for me #FACup

@CraigPerkins17: Crawley away #FACup 1st rd draw.. What an absolute stinker of a tie #TRFC

@grahamwitch1: Portsmouth home to Harrow Borough. Great draw for the minnows. #FACup

@APCAFC: I’d say the best 3 #FACup TV picks are…
AFC Sudbury v Col U
Corinthian Casuals/St Albans v Forest Green
Boston/Stratford v Shrewsbury
Not sure how many games @BBCSport & @ITVSport will show though. Hoping ITV take the competition seriously and show as many games BT used to

@HillingdonPosh: Sudbury v Colchester as big as there is I’d say

@BertiefulSouth: Nice little tie for Banbury Utd #nonleague

@AndyJSykes: Sudbury v Colchester and Bolton v Stockport obvious ties to be broadcast on TV. Not many others jump out.


AFC Sudbury guaranteed their place in the Emirates FA Cup first round proper with a sensational 3-1 win against Dartford on a thrilling day of fourth round qualifying action.

The Isthmian League Division One North side were the only Level 8 side to win but they had to do it the hard way.  

Dartford led 1-0 at half-time thanks to a Jack Jebb strike but goals from Reece Harris, Shane Temple and Lewis O’Malley turned the game on its head.   Three more Level 8 sides could join them in the first round proper after forcing replays, including Marine – who played Tottenham Hotspur in the third round last season.  

They faced National League side Wrexham, three tiers above them, and looked set for victory when Owen Watkinson scored in the 78th minute to put them 1-0 up.  

But a last-gasp free-kick from Jordan Davies rescued the Welsh side and kept their own dream alive.  

There are also three tiers between Northern Premier League Division One East’s Pontefract Collieries and National League’s Halifax Town but they drew 0-0, while Marske United also drew 0-0 with Gateshead United – who are two tiers higher.  

Four Level 8 sides bowed out, including Stamford – who went down 3-0 to Stockport County through goals from Ryan Crossdale, Paddy Madden and Scott Quigley, while National League Maidenhead United saw off Hastings United 3-1.  

Amari Morgan-Smith scored the winner for National League North’s Kidderminster Harriers in their 1-0 win at Bedfont Sports and Southend United rallied from a goal down to beat Chertsey 4-1 at Roots Hall.  

Nathan Ferguson and Rhys Murphy were among those on target after Casey McLaren had put Chertsey ahead after five minutes.  

Elsewhere, Grimsby Town eased to a 5-0 win over Bromsgrove Sporting in the early kick-off. Sebastian Revan scored twice and David Longe-King once to put the Mariners 3-0 up at half-time, before an 82nd-minute Lenell John-Lewis penalty and Will Bapaga’s 90th-minute effort sealed a comfortable victory.  

Dagenham & Redbridge came from a goal down to defeat Wealdstone 2-1 in an all-National League battle, while Torquay were forced into a replay after Havant & Waterlooville secured a late equaliser in a 2-2 draw.   

1894 winners Notts County will also face a replay following a 0-0 draw against Tamworth, whilst Eastleigh rallied from 3-0 down to draw 3-3 with Folkestone.   

Harrow came from 2-1 down at half-time to defeat Chelmsford 4-2 thanks to a James Ewington hat-trick.  

Chelmsford were ahead thanks to efforts from Charlie Sheringham and Cameron James just three minutes apart towards the end of the opening 45 minutes.  

However, Ewington’s 63rd-minute penalty and 66th-minute strike – in addition to a first-half goal – saw the home side progress at Earlsmead, with Imran Uche sealing victory with less than 15 minutes to go.  

Boreham Wood, Altrincham, Ebbsfleet United and King’s Lynn Town were among the other winners who sealed a place in the first round proper, with the draw for that stage taking place on Sunday afternoon.
