THE draw for the first round of this season’s FA Cup takes place on Sunday.

Should they succeed in beating FC United of Manchester at the Victoria Stadium 24 hours earlier, then Northwich Victoria will be allocated ball number 60.

It will be broadcast live on ITV 1 from 1pm.

England test cricketer James Anderson and former England and Charlton Athletic defender Chris Powell will make the pairings for next month’s 40 first round matches.

Former FA Cup finalists Southampton and Millwall enter the fray at that stage, plus former Premier League clubs such as Leeds United and Norwich City.

The first round takes place on the weekend of November 7 and 8, when winning clubs will pocket £18,000 in prize money.
