Bescot Banter - Walsall FC News
The draw for the First Round (proper) of this season's Emirates FA Cup has taken place following the partial conclusion of the fourth qualifying round on Saturday afternoon.

With clubs from League One and League Two entering the competition, the stakes are high as the remaining non-league sides look to cause an upset and remain in the world's oldest domestic cup competition.

Along with a place in the next round, winning clubs will collect a welcome £41,000 from the competition's prize fund, a sum which will go a long way to securing the immediate future of many of the clubs remaining in the competition.
