Pre-draw - Nantwich Town Manager Dave Cooke and colleagues await the draw from The Leopard Nantwich - AFC Fylde

Nantwich Town will host AFC Fylde in the FA Cup 1st Round Proper after tonight’s draw.

The Dabbers will be happy with a home tie and will fancy their chances at the Weaver Stadium.

They have already toppled Telford and King’s Lynn from higher leagues on their current cup run.

Boss Dave Cooke and several players and staff gathered in the Leopard pub on London Road tonight to watch the FA Cup draw live on BBC.

Lancashire side Fylde were in the Northern Premier League a few seasons ago, but have found it a struggle in the fifth tier where they lie third from bottom.

They recently sacked manager Dave Challinor, and are yet to make a permanent appointment as his replacement.

John Hills and Brett Ormerod are in temporary charge.

The match at the Weaver Stadium is likely to take place on Saturday November 9, but this is yet to be confirmed.

League Two neighbours Crewe Alexandra have bee drawn away at League One Accrington Stanley.
