ALVECHURCH have been drawn to host Heath Hayes in the FA Cup extra preliminary round on August 15, with the winners progressing to a preliminary round tie at Brocton or Stourport Swifts on August 29.

In the FA Vase Ian Long’s new-look Alvechurch, who are hopeful of mounting a promotion push in the Midland Football League Premier Division, host Lichfield City in the first qualifying round on September 5, with the winners progressing to a second qualifying round tie at Lutterworth Athletic or Pilkington XXX on October 3.

REDDITCH United could have the chance to earn some cup revenge over fellow Worcestershire side Evesham United after being drawn to visit either the Robins or Chasetown in the FA Trophy first qualifying round on October 31.

Last season Liam McDonald’s Reds were knocked out of the FA Cup by Evesham in the first qualifying round as Paul Collicutt’s side won 1-0 at the Valley Stadium in a replay after a 0-0 draw in the original tie at the Jubilee Stadium.
