WARRINGTON Rylands 1906 will have to overcome a stiff test if they are to make it past the first hurdle of this season's FA Cup.

The draw for the Extra Preliminary Round has handed them a trip to 1874 Northwich – the only team to finish above them in the North West Counties League Premier Division in a curtailed 2019-20 campaign.

The tie will be played on Tuesday, September 1, and in accordance with the current coronavirus guidelines, the match will be played behind closed doors.

Should they progress, Dave McNabb's side will face Northern Premier League outfit Clitheroe at Gorsey Lane in the Preliminary Round on Saturday, September 12.

Blues have also discovered their fate in this season's FA Vase.

They will travel to Bolton-based Daisy Hill in the first qualifying round on Saturday, September 19.

The winners of that tie will be at home in the second qualifying round, with Cheadle Heath Nomads or Yorkshire outfit Goole providing the opposition, on Saturday, October 10.

On the return of spectators in time for the first FA Cup fixtures, an FA statement read: "The FA is currently working closely with the Government on the return of spectators at football matches at FA National League System level.

"Unless the Government permits the return of spectators at football matches prior to the Extra Preliminary Round, matches in this round will be played behind closed doors, with no spectators in attendance.

"This position will be reviewed by The FA on an ongoing basis prior to each round of each Competition and updates will be provided as soon as possible."
