Northwich Victoria are the only side from the North West Counties League guaranteed to contest a last 32 tie.

Irlam, should they overcome Winterton Rangers in a rearranged encounter, can still join them.

There remains a strong Northern League presence that includes a Hebburn Town side that eliminated Stockton Town, last season’s runners-up, on Saturday.

Newcastle Benfield, led by former Vics fans’ favourite Paul Brayson, are through too after coming from behind to beat Runcorn Town with a decisive goal in added time.

Games at this stage continue to be played on a geographical basis.

How it works

If a first match is drawn after 90 minutes, then extra-time is played.

Providing both clubs agree in advance, that same game can go to a penalty shoot-out to decide a winner if the scores remain level after an added half-hour.

Should both clubs prefer a replay in the event of a draw after extra-time, then it must be played on or before the following Saturday.

For the diary

However Witton Albion, Vics’ landlords, are scheduled to host South Shields in a Northern Premier League fixture the same afternoon.

That means a home tie would take place the following day.
