Find out who Hitchin Town will face in the FA Cup first round proper if they beat Leatherhead on Wednesday.

The Canaries, who hosted the draw from Top Field, have been picked to play Solihull Moors if they win at Fetcham Grove.

The tie will take place on a date between ninth and 12th of November, and it will be at Top Field if the Yellows progress through their fourth qualifying round replay, after drawing 1-1 with Leatherhead on Saturday.

Hitchin have yet to recieve a home draw in the world’s oldest knockout competition this season, and have only once played away from their evocative Top Field ground in the tournament, when they won their second qualifying round replay 3-2 on penalties against Didcot Town.

Their Vanarama National League potential opponents lie fifth at step one, and beat Witton Albion 2-0 away to progress past the qualifying rounds of the competition.
