Emirates FA Cup First Qualifying Round draw

Submitted by Simon Mears on Monday, 21 August 2017

Sunderland RCA have drawn Liversedge at home in the Emirates FA Cup First Qualifying Round.

The match will be played at Meadow Park on Saturday, 2 September, with a 3.00pm kick-off.

Liversedge play their football in the Northern Counties East League Premier Division and join a growing list of clubs that RCA have faced in FA Vase and FA Cup matches in recent seasons from the same division.

RCA are now one of only seven Northern League clubs remaining in the competition, and that number will definitely drop to six, or even five, depending on how the replays - Penrith v Whitley Bay and Scarborough Athletic v Marske United - go.

The full draw involving Northern League clubs is as follows:

Scarborough Athletic or Marske United v Workington
Bottesford Town v Shildon
Ossett Town v Consett
Penrith or Whitley Bay v Newcastle Benfield
Sunderland RCA v Liversedge

The winners of the First Qualifying Round match will receive £3,000 from the Emirates FA Cup prize fund.
