THE Brewers will be ball No 7 in the Emirates FA Cup First Round draw - which takes place on Monday

The draw will take place live on BBC2 from 7pm on Monday and you can find out our opponents and the manager's reaction here at

Conducted by Karen Carney and Jermaine Beckford, the draw will be broadcast live from the home ground of either Royston Town or Maldon & Tiptree, depending on which side is victorious on Saturday afternoon.

The 32 non-league clubs that progress from this weekend’s Fourth Qualifying Round  ties will be joined by 47 clubs from League One and Two.

Due to Bury FC’s removal from the EFL and subsequently The Emirates FA Cup, there will be an odd number of clubs entering the draw. As a result the final club left in the draw, that isn’t drawn to play in a tie in the First Round, will receive an automatic bye to the Second Round.

The First Round is scheduled for the weekend of Saturday, November 9.
