FA Cup extra preliminary round and preliminary round draw 2019/20

Cray Valley host Chatham Town in the pick of the FA Cup extra preliminary round matches.

The clubs cleaned up in Southern Counties East last season with the Millers winning the championship while Chats lifted the Challenge Cup and Kent Senior Trophy.

There’s history in the dugouts, too, with Cray boss Kevin Watson having spent four years in charge at Chatham, while Chats chief James Collins was controversially sacked by the Millers two years ago.

Relegated Greenwich Borough meet Canterbury City in an all-Southern Counties East clash while Tunbridge Wells, Corinthian, Lordswood and Sheppey are among the club drawn at home.

Newly-promoted Cray Valley enter at the first hurdle but the rest of the Isthmian South East clubs join the party in the preliminary round.

Prize money has been frozen this season, with extra preliminary round winners banking £2,250 and preliminary round winners earning £2,890. Losers in each round receive £750 and £960 respectively.
