FA Cup second-round draw: Fylde host 2013 winners Wigan, Boreham Wood sent to Coventry

FA Cup second round draw National League side AFC Fylde will host 2013 FA Cup winners Wigan in the second round of the competition. Fylde, through to this stage of the competition for the first time in their history following a victory over Kidderminster, were paired with the League One side when the second round draw was made on Monday. Fylde's fellow non-League side Boreham Wood will also face former winners of the competition in the shape of Coventry, who lifted the cup in 1987. Coventry will be at home for the tie. There were a total of 12 non-League sides in the draw. National League South Oxford City were drawn away to Notts County. Seventh-tier Hereford, the lowest-ranked side through to the second round, will face either Chorley or Fleetwood after their tie on Monday night. Leatherhead, who are ranked lower than Hereford, would go away to Wycombe if they win their replay against Billericay Town.

First-round review Exeter assistant manager Matt Oakley was delighted to progress to round two of the FA Cup after seeing his side see off gallant Heybridge Swifts 3-1 at St James' Park. Two Jayden Stockley goals shortly past the hour mark gave the Grecians a commanding lead, but Samuel Bentick turned in a cross to reduce the arrears and give the Swifts hope. But any hopes of a comeback were ended by Liam McAlinden, whose shot squeezed through the legs of goalkeeper Danny Sambridge, much to the relief of Oakley, who was standing in for the absent Paul Tisdale. "I'm very pleased. It was a banana skin waiting to happen for us, when you see the draw come out," Oakley said. Relief for Exeter as they see off Heybridge Swifts Credit:  PA "I am very pleased with the result, very pleased with the second half performance and pleased to come in at half-time with a clean sheet. "We had a very difficult time at Warrington a few years ago when we conceded after a few minutes and we couldn't break them down after that. It was one of the messages we talked about before the game, so I was very pleased. "They put us under a lot of pressure and probably came out after the first half with a bit more confidence than we did. I thought we started the game really well, I was really pleased with the start, but then we started losing the ball and a few misplaced touches and they grew in confidence and came into it. "They didn't threaten our goal too much, so I wasn't too worried about it. We just needed to tighten up in certain areas and improve our attacking play in wide areas and we did that well in the second half." What are the draw numbers?

Next year's breakout stars? The Premier League youngsters impressing out on loan this season

Angus Gunn, Manchester City - on loan at Norwich  Angus Gunn made a series of impressive saves in Norwich's Carabao Cup defeat to Arsenal  Credit: Getty Images  Son to legendary Norwich goalkeeper, Bryan, Angus has impressed in between the sticks since moving to Carrow Road on loan at the start of the season. Gunn spent seven years at Norwich City before being snapped up by Manchester City for a £250,000 fee in 2011. The England under-21 international returned to his boyhood club on a season-long loan deal having failed to make a single appearance for Manchester City's senior side. Angus Gunn lines up for England U21s  Credit: PA  City's loss has turned out to Norwich's gain; the 21-year-old has racked up 7 clean sheets so far this season: the most in the Championship.  On Tuesday night he was just minutes away from keeping a clean sheet at the Emirates to take his side through to the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup. "He’s an unbelievably talented goalkeeper," said Norwich sporting director, Stuart Webber, when Gunn's Carrow Road loan move had been confirmed earlier this season. The 21-year-old could offer a realistic challenge to Claudio Bravo as Man City's goalkeeping under study next season.  Cameron Carter-Vickers, Tottenham - on loan at Sheffield United  Carter-Vickers has become a mainstay in Sheffield United's first team this season  Credit: Getty Images  19-year-old Cameron Carter-Vickers has quickly earned a reputation for his no-nonsense defending. Currently on loan at Sheffield United, Carter-Vickers owes his athletic prowess to his former NBA basketball father, Howard Carter. "He should be a running back the way he’s built,” said Carter-Vickers' USA teammate, Alejandro Bedoya. “The guy’s calves and legs are humongous.” According to a story told by Harry Winks, Mauricio Pochettino recently felt the full force of Carter-Vicker's physicality when he decided to join in on an eight-a-side training match.  Carter-Vickers in action for Tottenham's U21 side  Credit: Getty Images  Pochettino went up for a high ball with the 19-year-old defender Cameron Carter-Vickers. Pochettino took a whack on his back and was forced to hobble off “I did it again today,” Pochettino said, referring to a separate incident. “I challenged with Cameron and my hand was … [he shakes it in pain]. It happened again. Cameron crushed everyone in the box.” Next season may be too soon for Carter-Vickers to become a permanent fixture in Tottenham's defence, but the departure of Toby Aldeirweireld could see the teenager offered an opportunity to prove his Premier League mettle.  Pablo Maffeo, Manchester City - on loan at Girona  Pablo Maffeo earned plaudits for his man-marking job on Lionel Messi earlier this season  Credit: Reuters  The man whose man-marking job on Lionel Messi earned him reluctant praise from the five-time Ballon d'Or winner.  Maffeo joined City from Espanyol in 2015 but moved back to Spain on loan with Girona last season after making only a handful of appearances. The 20-year-old's performance against Barcelona earned him many plaudits and praise from his Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola. Pablo Maffeo vies for the ball with Marcus Rashford during last season's League Cup tie  Credit: AP  "Young players like Pablo Maffeo and others must play and the sooner they reach this level of competition the better for them to take a step forward and become better players. "If they can't play in the first team, they need to go to other leagues like the Netherlands and Spain and be in those big games playing against players like Messi. That is the best way to improve. The Spaniard is represented by Pep's elder brother Pere and, given City's surprising dearth of full-backs available to him this season, Maffeo could be brought back into the fold at the Etihad.  Dean Henderson, Manchester United - on loan at Shrewsbury Town Dean Henderson has played a pivotal role in Shrewsbury Town's ascent to the top of the League One table  Credit: Getty Images  Fresh from having won the U20s World Cup with England last summer, Dean Henderson has quickly won hearts and minds in Shrewsbury Town's march towards League One promotion.  Shrewsbury are the only unbeaten team left in the Football League and the arrival of Henderson on loan from Manchester United has been a large factor in their ascent to the top of the table. With David De Gea, Sergio Romero and Joel Pereira all currently ahead Henderson in the goalkeeping pecking order, the 20-year-old may need to seek a move to guarantee the top-flight football his talent and form deserves. Kieran Dowell, Everton - on loan at Nottingham Forest Kieran Dowell has impressed on loan at Nottingham Forest  Credit: Getty Images  Everton have blooded a number of young talents already this season - but of all their talented young players, Dowell comes as the most highly-rated. Currently playing under Mark Warburton at Nottingham Forest, the 20-year-old formed a formidable partnership with fellow Toffee Jonjoe Kenny during England's World Cup-winning campaign in South Korea. Everton's dismal start to the season has seen a number of fans plead with caretaker manager David Unsworth to recall Dowell in the hope of injecting some much-needed creativity.  Andreas Pereira, Manchester United - on loan at Valencia   Andreas Pereira in action during a pre-season friendly between Manchester United and Real Madrid  Credit: Getty Images  Pereira, signed as a youth player from PSV Eindhoven five years ago, has yet to start a league game for United but is so highly regarded that he was handed a new long-term deal by Mourinho this summer - just as he decided to move elsewhere. The Brazilian winger directly defied Mourinho's wish that he stay and fight for his place at Old Trafford, leading the United manager to suggest he was 'not ready' to play for the United. Pereira was unfazed by Mourinho's comments and has since gone on to put in a series of impressive goalscoring performances in La Liga. "I think of the positive: If I were not a good player, he would not have said anything in the press, he would have let me go and that's it,: said Pereira. "I think he was worried because I left. I have to think about myself now."

"He’s an unbelievably talented goalkeeper," said Norwich sporting director, Stuart Webber, when Gunn's Carrow Road loan move had been confirmed earlier this season. The 21-year-old could offer a realistic challenge to Claudio Bravo as Man City's goalkeeping under study next season.  Cameron Carter-Vickers, Tottenham - on loan at Sheffield United  Carter-Vickers has become a mainstay in Sheffield United's first team this season  Credit: Getty Images  19-year-old Cameron Carter-Vickers has quickly earned a reputation for his no-nonsense defending.

Everton's dismal start to the season has seen a number of fans plead with caretaker manager David Unsworth to recall Dowell in the hope of injecting some much-needed creativity.  Andreas Pereira, Manchester United - on loan at Valencia   Andreas Pereira in action during a pre-season friendly between Manchester United and Real Madrid  Credit: Getty Images  Pereira, signed as a youth player from PSV Eindhoven five years ago, has yet to start a league game for United but is so highly regarded that he was handed a new long-term deal by Mourinho this summer - just as he decided to move elsewhere. The Brazilian winger directly defied Mourinho's wish that he stay and fight for his place at Old Trafford, leading the United manager to suggest he was 'not ready' to play for the United. Pereira was unfazed by Mourinho's comments and has since gone on to put in a series of impressive goalscoring performances in La Liga. "I think of the positive: If I were not a good player, he would not have said anything in the press, he would have let me go and that's it,: said Pereira. "I think he was worried because I left. I have to think about myself now."

FA Cup first round draw: Hyde United (eighth tier) host MK Dons

  7:28PM And that's the draw The excitement is over! No more balls will be drawn! Morecambe vs Hartlepool is pretty good, Doncaster will visit either East Thurrock or Ebsfleet. Hyde vs MK Dons is a brilliant tie for the minnows. I was really hoping for a Slough vs Swindon draw, purely for Office quotes.  7:25PM Eighth tier Hyde will play MK Dons! The crowd goes wild in the BBC studio as the draw is announced. That's the big club the players wanted. 7:24PM Lads, can we please have some music Or something. This draw is not one of the most exciting things I've ever seen on television. That Liverpool vs Man Utd game on Saturday was more entertaining. 7:21PM AFC Wimbledon vs Lincoln City AFC Wimbledon are one of the clubs to have benefited immensely from TV money brought by the FA Cup and they are drawn against Lincoln City.  7:19PM Some more fixtures for you Peterborough Utd v Tranmere Cambridge Utd v Sutton Utd Forest Green Rovers v Macclesfield Town AFC Fylde v Kidderminster Harriers Luton v Portsmouth Shrewsbury v Aldershot Hereford v AFC Telford Utd Guiseley v Accrington Stanley Blackburn Rovers v Barnet 7:16PM No huge match ups so far Bradford City v Chesterfield Port Vale v Oxford Utd Newport County v Walsall Morecambe v Hartlepool Utd 7:14PM And it's set of balls number eight And Lancelot is the FA Cup draw machine for tonight. What a hilarious National Lottery joke. And the first fixture is Stevenage vs Nantwich or Kettering. IT'S ALL KICKING OFF NOW, CLIVE. 7:12PM Your Davids, your Goliaths Hyde, Heybridge Swifts and Ossett Town are the lowest ranked teams in the competition, with all three occupying the eighth tier of English football.  7:10PM David Sharpe The Wigan chairman, grandson of Dave Whelan, fancies Wigan's chances this season. And now it's time for the draw!   7:05PM Who do the small teams want to get in the draw? According to a couple of Hyde football staff (manager and player), the management want to play against a team they can probably beat whereas the players want to draw Blackburn or Charlton - one of the 'big' clubs. Hyde actually own the record for biggest defeat in the FA Cup. A 26-0 hiding (see what I did) by Preston North End. 7:00PM The live coverage begins! Here we go. The draw is being held at Hyde United's ground. Look how cool their sun was earlier: Red sun today. FA Cup draw at Hyde United. Is that an omen. #EmiratesFACuppic.twitter.com/LoZ27mZjKW— Hyde United FC (@hydeunited) October 16, 2017   6:47PM The difference the FA Cup actually makes I wrote this in January about just how much an FA Cup run is worth to a small club. It turns out the answer is everything. The FA awards a prize of £1.8million to the winners of the competition, the kind of short-change a Champions League club might use as a sweetener for a promising youth prospect’s signing-on fee. For non-league side Curzon Ashton just qualifying for the second round of the competition will, and has, had an enormous impact.   Image     Landscape Portrait Square Original/Custom   Edit Selected Crop... Caption:   Description: curzon ashton Agency: GETTY IMAGES Artist:       Edit...   Delete     “It means so much to us a club,” says their CEO Natalie Atkinson. “The FA Cup is enabling us, through prize money, funds gained and TV money to work with the FA and football foundations to replace our 3G pitch next to the stadium.” Curzon Ashton, currently 15th in the National League North, lost 4-3 to AFC Wimbledon in December, conceding four goals in the final 10 minutes of the game. The prize for qualifying for the second round was £27,000, in addition to £18,000 earned from the first round. Those sucker-punch goals prevented a windfall of £67,500 for making it to third round. However, thanks to the wonder of television money, the club received more for their defeat to Wimbledon than they would have if they’d won a non-televised second round match. There's more on the article, if you fancy clicking on it. 6:30PM The magic of the cup This most holy of trophies always produces magical moments and even if a guilty few/most don't pay attention to the competition until their team is involved, those matches between minnows of the lower leagues and giants of... in this case, League One, are always thoroughly enjoyable.  Sutton are looking to make a lot more money from another (pie free) run at the cup this year, Accrington Stanley's involvement will be upping the YouTube view count on this milk advert, and today is the first time I have ever heard of Gainsborough Trinity. Perhaps they will become my new favourite non-league - maybe they'll be yours! It all depends who has to play who - and which of those games the people in charge at BBC decide to broadcast... 6:15PM Good evening! Hello there sports fans. Welcome to our live coverage of what is sure to be a riveting FA Cup first round draw. The action will kick-off at 7:10pm and we'll keep you up to date with the draw as it happens. For right now, that wait should give you time to look at all the nice photographs of that weird looking sun from earlier today. It was like being in Blade Runner. 6:09PM Preview What is it? It's the draw for the first round proper of the FA Cup: the oldest competition in world football.  The first round sees the 48 teams from League One and League Two joined by 32 non-league sides. When is it? Monday October 16. What time is it? The draw itself will begin at 7:10pm on Monday evening. The first round of the FA Cup will take place on Saturday November 4  Credit: AP  What TV channel is it on? The draw will be broadcast live on both BBC Two and BT Sport. Mark Chapman will present the BBC's coverage of the draw in half-hour long episode from 7pm, while BT Sport 3's show will also begin at 7pm.  When will the matches take place?  The first round will take place over the weekend of Friday November 3 to Monday 6 November 2017 Who's in the hat? Sutton United made it to the fifth round of the FA Cup last season  Credit: Getty Images  Three teams from the eighth tier of English football are among the non-league teams in the hat for the first round. Hyde United, who play in the Northern Premier League, beat Scarborough Athletic on Sunday afternoon to book their place in the competition.  Hampton and Richmond, who are coached by Sky Sports commentator Martin Tyler, failed in their bid to reach the FA Cup proper after losing to  National League South rivals Truro City. Truro's 2-0 victory over their league rivals means they become the first Cornwal team to reach the FA Cup first round since 1969.  Billericay Town, whose current players include Jamie O'Hara, Paul Konchesky and Jermaine Pennant, will also take their place in the draw.  FA Cup first round numbers 1 ACCRINGTON STANLEY 2 AFC WIMBLEDON 3 BARNET 4 BLACKBURN ROVERS 5 BLACKPOOL 6 BRADFORD CITY 7 BRISTOL ROVERS 8 BURY 9 CAMBRIDGE UNITED 10 CARLISLE UNITED 11 CHARLTON ATHLETIC 12 CHELTENHAM TOWN 13 CHESTERFIELD 14 COLCHESTER UNITED 15 COVENTRY CITY 16 CRAWLEY TOWN 17 CREWE ALEXANDRA 18 DONCASTER ROVERS 19 EXETER CITY 20 FLEETWOOD TOWN 21 FOREST GREEN ROVERS 22 GILLINGHAM 23 GRIMSBY TOWN 24 LINCOLN CITY 25 LUTON TOWN 26 MANSFIELD TOWN 27 MILTON KEYNES DONS 28 MORECAMBE 29 NEWPORT COUNTY 30 NORTHAMPTON TOWN 31 NOTTS COUNTY 32 OLDHAM ATHLETIC 33 OXFORD UNITED 34 PETERBOROUGH UNITED 35 PLYMOUTH ARGYLE 36 PORT VALE 37 PORTSMOUTH 38 ROCHDALE 39 ROTHERHAM UNITED 40 SCUNTHORPE UNITED 41 SHREWSBURY TOWN 42 SOUTHEND UNITED 43 STEVENAGE 44 SWINDON TOWN 45 WALSALL 46 WIGAN ATHLETIC 47 WYCOMBE WANDERERS 48 YEOVIL TOWN 49 TRANMERE ROVERS 50 SOLIHULL MOORS OR OSSETT TOWN 51 HARTLEPOOL UNITED 52 SHAW LANE ASSOCIATION 53 CHORLEY OR BOSTON UNITED 54 AFC TELFORD UNITED 55 GAINSBOROUGH TRINITY 56 NANTWICH TOWN OR KETTERING TOWN 57 GATESHEAD 58 GUISELEY 59 AFC FYLDE 60 KIDDERMINSTER HARRIERS 61 HYDE UNITED 62 MACCLESFIELD TOWN 63 BRACKLEY TOWN OR BILLERICAY TOWN 64 DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE OR LEYTON ORIENT 65 HEREFORD 66 ALDERSHOT TOWN  67 BATH CITY OR CHELMSFORD CITY 68 OXFORD CITY 69 MAIDENHEAD UNITED 70 HEYBRIDGE SWIFTS 71 WOKING OR CONCORD RANGERS 72 TRURO CITY 73 DOVER ATHLETIC OR BROMLEY 74 SLOUGH TOWN 75 DARTFORD 76 BOREHAM WOOD 77 MAIDSTONE UNITED OR ENFIELD TOWN 78 LEATHERHEAD 79 SUTTON UNITED 80 EAST THURROCK UNITED OR EBBSFLEET UNITED
