The Iron enter the first round proper of the FA Cup as the highest ranked side in the competition and will be ball number 40 for the draw.

The draw takes place on Monday 17 October at approximately 7.10pm, live on BT Sport and BBC 2.

The 48 League One and League Two sides have been ordered alphabetically from Accrington Stanley (1) to Yeovil Town (48), with the remaining non-league sides, who have battled as far back as the extra preliminary round, taking balls 49 to 80.

The lowest ranked side left in the competition is Westfields, in the ninth tier of English football with Richard Greaves netting a late winner in a 2-1 victory over Leiston. The Midland League Premier Division team were just one of two sides out of the 368 that battled in the competition right from the start, winning every one of their 15 matches in all competitions since.

Merstham reached round one in their own mini shock to see off Ebbsfleet United, while Spennymoor Town, Braintree Town, Dover Athletic and Chesham United all reached the first round proper.

National League South side Whitehawk again reach round one after achieving the feat last season for the very first time. The side were edged out narrowly in a replay against Dagenham & Redbridge.
