FA CUP: First round opponents confirmed

Emirates FA Cup first round draw details

22 October 2018

Carlisle United have been drawn to face Crewe Alexandra away in the first round of this season's FA Cup.

The Alex currently sit six places below the Blues with the sides already having met earlier this season when a second half goal from Ashley Nadesan was enough to keep the points up here in Cumbria.

Crewe are on a good run of form, having lost just one of their four games in October, and having picked up their first away win of the campaign at Stevenage on Saturday.

We'll be meeting up once again with former-United players Shaun Miller and Michael Raynes once again with both sides keen to progress in the world's most famous knock-out competition. 

Ties to be played on the weekend of 9, 10, 11, 12 November - full match details to be released once confirmed.
