FA Cup second-round draw: Giant-killers Alvechurch away at Forest Green | FA Cup

Non-league Alvechurch have been rewarded for their FA Cup giantkilling exploits with a trip to Forest Green in the second round. The Worcestershire-based side, who play in the seventh-tier Southern League Premier Central Division and are the lowest-ranked team left in the competition, stunned League One’s Cheltenham on Saturday.

They will now play another team from the third tier in Forest Green, who saw off non-league South Shields, following Monday’s draw.

In another intriguing tie, Wrexham, one of the National League pacesetters, host National League South Farnborough. The Welsh side, who have been rejuvenated following their high-profile takeover by actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney last year, eased past Oldham on Sunday while Farnborough overcame Sutton.

Ebbsfleet, also of the National League South, host League One opposition in Fleetwood while National League North high-flyers King’s Lynn take on League Two Stevenage.

National League South Chippenham, who claimed a shock win over League One Lincoln, face another side from the same division in Burton.
