AFC Sudbury will face League Two’s Colchester United in the headline tie of First Round of 2021-22 FA Cup, following completion of the opening round draw.

AFC Sudbury overcame National League South’s Dartford 3-1 in the Fourth Qualifying Round to secure a place in the First Round Proper, which will now see them host EFL opposition in Colchester United at King’s Marsh.

This tie also marks the first time since 2000-01 season that The Suds have reached this stage of the FA Cup, albeit as the only eighth-tier team definitely left in the competition this season.

Banbury United is the only seventh-tier team in this round to be drawn at home as they face Barrow, whilst Horsham, Harrow Borough and Bowers & Pitsea were drawn away at Carlisle United, Portsmouth and Lincoln City respectively.

Elsewhere, there are 15 all-EFL ties in the First Round with League Two’s promotion-chasing Hartlepool handed a home tie against League One’s Wycombe Wanderers in one of the stand-out ties between EFL clubs.

League One’s Morecambe will host Newport County for the first time since their nervy meeting in last season’s League Two Play-Off Final at Wembley Stadium.

All First Round ties will be played between 5-8 November 2021 and a full list of the First Round ties can be found below.
