REDDITCH United face Boldmere St Michaels while Alvechurch will host Basford United in FA Cup first round qualifying.

The Reds host Boldmere at Valley Stadium while Church take on Basford at their Lye Meadow home on the weekend of Saturday, September 2.

Ian Long’s Alvechurch team enjoyed a memorable run to the second round proper last season, hosting the first round draw before then beating League One side Cheltenham Town.

Church’s fairytale run eventually came to an end against then League One side Forest Green Rovers.

Redditch lost 1-0 away at Peterborough Sports in second round qualifying last season following a replay.

United’s opponents Boldmere play at step four in the Northern Premier League Midlands division while Church’s opposition Basford play at step three in the Northern Premier League Premier division.
