The FA Cup first round draw has now taken place, it was done on Monday night and since then all but replay has taken place to pretty much confirm the full fixture list for the weekend of Saturday 5th November 2016. The only game still to be played is Gateshead vs Alfreton Town which takes place tonight at 7.45pm, whoever wins that will get a home tie against Newport who are currently bottom of the football league.
