FA Cup and FA Trophy draws to be released today!

By Callum Chadwick

Preliminary Round draws for the FA competitions to be released at 1pm today

Widnes will find out their opponents in the early rounds of both the Emirates FA Cup and Buildbase FA Trophy at 1pm today.

At 1pm via the FA’s website, a list of the clubs accepted in both competitions will be published, together with the list of clubs receiving exemptions and the extra preliminary and preliminary round draws.

Round dates and prize funds will also be confirmed.

Widnes will enter the FA Cup for the third successive season, but the Whites are still searching for an elusive first win in the competition having exited at the Extra Preliminary Round stage to both Handsworth Parramore and Northwich Victoria.

However, the Whites are expected to enter this year's competition at the Preliminary Round stage, owing to their 12th placed finish in the Northern Premier League Division One West last term.

Meanwhile, Widnes will enter the FA Trophy for the second time in the club's history but remain winless in the competition after losing at Droylsden in the Extra Preliminary Round last season.
