Seventh division side Alvechurch meet League One Cheltenham in the first round of the FA Cup

Seventh tier side Alvechurch will travel to League One Cheltenham next month in the FA Cup first round.

The Worcestershire side, 19th in the Southern League’s Premier Central Division, were given the test match in Monday’s draw following their qualifying win over Worksop Town on Saturday.

Coalville Town and Needham Market, who play in the same division, also face trips to League One opponents in Charlton and Burton respectively.

Alvechurch are the lowest-ranked team confirmed in the first round, but Hendon could join the Southern League Premier South’s basement team if they beat National League South’s Chippenham on Tuesday.

The win would earn them a home game against League One Lincoln.

Other notable encounters between sides outside the league include Northern Premier League’s South Shields taking on League One Forest Green and Southern Premier League South’s Merthyr Town heading to National League North Buxton.

League One leaders Plymouth will visit Grimsby, who were promoted back to the English Football League last season. League Two pacesetter Stevenage will travel to Altrincham or Gateshead.

Bolton will host Barnsley, Sheffield Wednesday will host Morecambe and Exeter will visit Port Vale in all League 1 games.
