Reds will find out their opponents in the first round of this year's Emirates FA Cup when the draw is made on Monday, live on BBC2 from 7pm.

Five-time FA Cup winner and former England midfielder Karen Carney and ex-Leeds United and Everton striker Jermaine Beckford will conduct the draw with Reds ball number 13. It will take place at Maldon & Tiptree FC. Among the clubs in the draw are Sussex's only other representatives at this stage Chichester City United.

The 32 non-league clubs which progressed from this weekend’s fourth-round qualifying ties will be joined by 47 clubs from Sky Bet League One and Sky Bet League Two.

Due to Bury FC’s removal from the EFL and, subsequently, The Emirates FA Cup, there will be an odd number of clubs entering the draw.

As a result, the final club left in the draw will recieve a bye into the second round proper. 

Ties will be played over the weekend of November 9.
