Northwich derby the pick as early FA Cup draws are announced

The Road to Wembley has begun after the Football Association revealed the draws for the early rounds of the Emirates FA Cup were released on Friday lunchtime.

Three hundred and seventy clubs have been entered into the Extra Preliminary Round draw, with winners of those ties awarded £1,500.

The pick of the ties sees a Northwich derby as Northwich Victoria host local rivals 1874 Northwich.

Ebac Northern League title contenders Shildon and Morpeth Town will face each other, with Shildon remaining the last Northern League side to reach the first round proper fourteen years ago.

A number of Northern League teams have been drawn together, with Consett hosting Bishop Auckland and former league winners Markse United hosting 2015 FA Vase winners North Shields.

Former National League South side Worcester City, joint-managed by former West Brom striker Lee Hughes, will travel to Daventry Town.

In the Preliminary Round draw FA Vase winners South Shields will entertain the winners of the tie between Bridlington Town and Billingham Synthonia.

Daventry Town or Worcester City will host Chasetown, who reached the Third Round of the competition in 2008.
