The FA Cup first round draw took place at Hitchin Town’s Top Field on Monday evening, in a makeshift studio packed with club players and staff awaiting their fate.

Although still yet to play Leatherhead in a fourth round of qualifying replay, the group eagerly awaited the announcement of the away team after cheers when they were drawn at home.

Hopes of getting a big team in the first round proper were soon dashed however and the audible groans seemed to indicate disappointment at the possibility of a visit from National League side Solihull Moors.
