Emirates FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Draw

  • Midday, Monday 8th October 2018
  • Live on talkSport 2
  • Ties to take place on Saturday, 20th October
  • Winning clubs to receive £25,000

The Emirates FA Cup fourth round qualifying draw will be broadcast live on talkSPORT 2 this Monday, 8 October.

The draw, which will be hosted by Ray Stubbs, will take place at Wembley Stadium with 32 ties being pulled from the famous velvet bag.

You can listen in to 'Football First', on air from 10am with the draw due to commence at midday.

It will be conducted by former Chelsea, Swindon and Luton striker Sam Parkin and non-League football connoisseur Tony Incenzo.

The third round qualifying took place this weekend, while the next stage is scheduled for the weekend of Saturday, 20 October.

Each winning club in the fourth round qualifying will receive £25,000 from The FA prize fund and a place in the first round proper.

The draw, split in to North and South, will see all of the Vanarama National League teams entering at this stage. 

Lower division sides still in the draw, and who could be paired to play Wrexham, are the likes of Chorley, Stockport County, Alfreton Town, Marine, Altrincham, Dunston UTS, Stourbridge, Ashton United, Kettering Town, Witton Albion, Southport, Blyth Spartans, York City and Warrington Town - while there are replays involving Coalville & St Neots, Kidsgrove Athletic & Workington and Guiseley & Cleethorpes Town.

Marine (BrackleyTown), Dunston UTS (Chester), Stourbridge (Kidderminster) and Witton (FC United) all beat higher ranked clubs from the National League North in a spate of early giant-killing.

Wrexham went out of the competition at this stage last season with a narrow 1-0 away loss at promotion rivals AFC Fylde. The 2016-17 campaign saw a 1-1 draw at Stamford before defeat in the replay, while our 2015-16 involvement also ended early at the hands of Gainsborough Trinity (0-1), who extracted some revenage for their 2013 FA Trophy semi-final exit.

In 2014-15, it was a different fourth round qualifying story, with the Reds beating Macclesfield Town 5-2 at the Racecourse, seeing off Woking 3-0 in the first round proper and earning a 3-1 win over Maidstone United in the second round, before a valiant reverse in the third round by then Premier League side Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium, in front of 5,000 travelling fans.
