Robins FA Cup first round opponents revealed

26 October 2020

Cheltenham Town have been drawn to face South Shields in the Emirates FA Cup first round proper.

The match against the Northern Premier League outfit is due to take place on the weekend of Saturday 7 November.

It will be the Robins first venture into the FA Cup this season. The last two campaigns have seen Michael Duff's side reach the second round of the competition, only to bow out against League One Accrington Stanley in the 2018/19 campaign, and Tuesday night opponents Port Vale last season.

For South Shields, they reached this stage after a giantkilling in the fourth qualifying round at the weekend as they defeated National League FC Halifax Town.

The winners of the first round game will pocket £22,629 in prize money.
