FA CUP DRAW: Newmarket handed home tie while Mildenhall Town and Ely City both start away

Newmarket Town's road to Wembley in this season's Emirates FA Cup will begin with a home extra preliminary round encounter against Arlesey Town on Saturday, August 10.

The Bedfordshire-based visitors, who finished eighth in the Spartan South Midlands League last term, reached the first round proper of the world's oldest cup competition in 2012 and 2013.

If the Jockeys can come through that tie they will be at home again in the preliminary round on August 24 when either fellow Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division side Walsham-le-Willows or Peterborough Northern Star will be their visitors.
