The Emirates FA Cup on show at Wembley Stadium

The draw for the Emirates FA Cup fourth round qualifying has been made and the 77 remaining teams now know who stands between them and a place in the first round proper.

Stourbridge’s reward after Saturday’s 1-0 home win against Black Country rivals Rushall Olympic is a huge home tie – and a local derby – against Kidderminster Harriers. 

The Northern Premier League side, handily placed in the Premier Division, might fancy their chances against a National League outfit still searching for their first win.

Winners receive £12,500

Tranmere Rovers, who were relegated from League Two at the end of the 2014-15 campaign are featuring in this round for the first time since the 1920s. 

Rovers – who played Liverpool in a home quarter final in 2001 – were handed a home tie against Lincoln City. 

In the southern half of the draw Alan Devonshire’s Maidenhead United are at home to Woking and Bromley, flying high in the National League, host Eastleigh who are five points below them. 

Two Step 5 clubs left in the competition – Sporting Khalsa and Hoddesdon Town – face away replays this week before they can line up in the fourth round qualifying.

The designated date for the 32 ties is Saturday, 24 October and the winners will each collect £12,500 from The FA’s prize fund.
