Winning sides receive £4,500

The 44 clubs of the National League North and South enter at this stage. Solihull Moors, four points clear at the top of the National League North, will start their FA Cup campaign with a home tie against Oadby Town, the United Counties League side who knocked out Sutton Coldfield Town, two levels above them, on Saturday.

Ebbsfleet United, table-toppers in the National League South with seven wins in their first eight fixtures, face a difficult tie at Chelmsford City, seven points below them in the table.

Havant & Waterlooville, mid-table in the National League South, played Liverpool at Anfield in the Cup in 2008. Monday’s draw has given them a trip to Larkhall Athletic in Bath.

Spennymoor Town of the Northern Premier League’s Division One North beat one of last season’s Cup heroes, Blyth Spartans, on Saturday to earn a home tie with Burscough, who famously knocked out Gillingham in 2005. 

Premier Division Workington, for whom Scott Allison netted a hat-trick of penalties in their 5-0 demolition of Colwyn Bay at the weekend, entertain Harrogate Town.
