WITH an increase in entrants, the FA Cup gets underway on August 11 and five local clubs get home ties in the Extra Preliminary Round for which each winner gets £1,000.

Draw includes Dinnington Town v Atherton Collieries, Parkgate v Runcorn Town, AFC Emley v Chadderton, Staveley v Hall Road Rangers, Hemsworth MW v Runcorn Linnets, Dunston UTS v Armthorpe Welfare, Atherton LR v Rossington Main, Cheadle Town v Maltby Main.

There is the prospect of a local derby in the next stage, the Preliminary round. If Hallam and Parkgate win their ties then they clash at Sandygate on August 25. At the same stage, Sheffield entertain St Helens or Alder Hey.
