Boston United FC:

The National League North side face a trip to Carshalton Athletic. Based in Lincolnshire, Boston will travel 300 miles to south London where they will aim to keep their 100% clean sheet record in tact in this competition.

Kick off: Saturday 9th, 15:00PM

Pitchero Website Ranking: 3rd







Chippenham Town FC:

Members of the National League South, Chippenham have a tough home draw against Northampton town of League Two. The Wiltshire club are expecting a bumper crowd at Hardenhuish Park.

Kick off: Sunday 10th, 11:45AM

Pitchero Website Ranking: 16th






Dulwich Hamlet FC:

Playing under the lights this evening in front of a sold out home crowd, live on BBC Two, it's fair to say that Dulwich Hamlet fans are looking forward to tonight. The National League South are seeking an upset as they face Carlisle United of League Two.

 Kick Off: Friday 9th, 19:55PM (Live on BBC Two from 19:30PM)

Pitchero Website Ranking: 1st







Gateshead FC:

Having scored 12 goals and conceded 0 in the previous 3 rounds, Mike Williamson's Gateshead are looking to continue their fine cup form. The Heed Army of the National League North face League Two outfit Oldham Athletic at the Gateshead International Stadium.

Kick Off: Sunday 11th, 12:45PM 

Pitchero Website Ranking: 12th







Maidenhead United FC:

Hoping to reach the 2nd round of the FA Cup for the first time in their history, Maidenhead United welcome South Yorkshire side Rotherham United to York Road. With a former FA Cup winner at the helm, The Magpies of the National League are looking to shock the The Millers of League One.

Kick Off: Saturday 10th, 15:00PM

Pitchero Website Ranking: 10th







Maldon & Tiptree FC:

Appearing in the FA Cup 1st round for the first time in their history, Maldon & Tiptree of the Isthmian League North Division are the lowest ranked club in the competition. Travelling to Lleyton Orient, victory for the Essex club would be the biggest cupset of the round. 

Kick Off: Sunday 11th, 12:45PM

Pitchero Website Ranking: 10th







Oxord City FC: 

The National League South side are making their third successive appearance in the FA Cup first round. Aiming to reach the 2nd round for the third time in their history, Oxford face Solihull Moors at home in a Pitchero vs Pitchero tie!

Kick Off: Saturday 10th, 15:00PM

Pitchero Website Ranking: 20th








Solihull Moors FC:

Despite only forming in 2007, the West Midlands side are just one league away from the Football League. They play fellow Pitchero club Oxford City away from home. Placed one tier higher in English football, and eighteen places higher in Pitchero rankings (20th vs 2nd), will this be reflected in the Pitchero vs Pitchero FA Cup match on Saturday?

Kick Off: Saturday 10th, 15:00PM

Pitchero Website Ranking: 2nd







Stourbridge FC: 

Dubbed the 'FA Cup Non-League side of the 21st century', Stourbridge will play in the 1st round of the FA Cup for the sixth time in ten years as they face Eastleigh at home. Stourbridge have won 39 FA Cup ties in the last decade, whilst Arsenal (who've won the competition 3 times) have only won 31! Can they produce another upset this weekend against a side two leagues higher?

 Kick Off: Saturday 10th, 15:00PM

Pitchero Website Ranking: 4th

Good luck to all teams involved and safe travels to any fans embarking on long away trips this weekend
