Emirates FA Cup

Stones at home to Rochdale

Maidstone United have been drawn at home to Rochdale in the first round of the Emirates FA Cup.

The draw, which was made live on BBC Two and BT Sport, sees the Stones host the League One side at the Gallagher Stadium. Paul Ince pulled out ball 75, before David James confirmed the opponents when ball 39 was drawn.

Dale are fourth in Sky Bet League One with six wins, three draws and four defeats so far. They are still in the league cup as well after beating Notts County earlier this month.

This is the third year in a row that Jay Saunders’ side have made it to this stage. Last season it ended there when Yeovil Town left the Gallagher Stadium victorious. The season before that saw the Stones reach round two where cup dreams ended at Wrexham’s Racecourse ground.

The first round draw was made up of 32 winners from the fourth qualifying round and 48 clubs from League One and League Two, who start their campaign at this stage.

Matches will be played the weekend of 5 to 6 November. First round winners will pocket £18,000 in prize money and edge ever closer to that much sought after third round where teams from the Premier League and Championship enter the competition.

  • Ticket information will be announced in the next day or so.
