The FA will publish the draw in full on their official website here


Of the remaining teams, 1874 Northwich are the only representative from the North West Counties League following the exit of Runcorn Linnets and City of Liverpool at the weekend.

A head-to-head with Marske United, established as favourites to lift the trophy at Wembley by bookmakers, is a possibility.

They beat Linnets 3-2 on Saturday, and sit second behind Morpeth Town in the Northern League’s top-flight.

The draw is made on a geographical basis, although the official FA Vase rules offer no more detail than that.

Clubs eliminated at this stage receive £625.

After five wins to date, 1874 Northwich have already ensured they will bank £4,125 from this season’s edition.

What do the bookies think?

Betway now rate 1874 Northwich as 25/1 outsiders to win the competition.

Three Northern League sides – Marske United, West Auckland Town and Newcastle Benfield – are their leading contenders.

Pontefract Collieries, currently second in the Northern Counties East League’s Premier Division, are ranked as fourth favourites.
