The Emirates FA Cup Draw On Monday

12 October 2016

Monday's draw will take place live on BBC2 and BT Sport at around 7.10pm.

THE Emirates FA Cup First Round draw will take place on Monday (17th October).

It's the first time since the 2009/ 2010 season that the Mariners haven't had to play in the qualifying rounds of the competition, and Paul Hurst will be looking for another good cup run.

Last season Town saw off National League North side Harrogate Town in a thrilling Fourth Round Qualifying tie at the CNG Stadium.  That was followed by thumping St Albans City 5-1 in a First Round proper clash at Blundell Park. The win against the National League South side teed up a lucrative TV game against League One side Shrewsbury Town.

Despite having the vast majority of possession and the better of the chances, the Mariners were forced to settle for a nil-nil draw and a replay at Shrewsbury.

The Mariners suffered added-time heartbreak in that replay, as the run was brought to a swift end at the Greenhous Meadow. Abu Ogogo's 90+2 strike was enough to put The Shrews through, with a home tie against Manchester United to follow in a later round.  

Monday's draw will take place live on BBC2 and BT Sport at around 7.10pm.

First round ties will take place on Saturday 5th November.
