games to be played on the weekend of Saturday 22nd October
winners receive £675 from the FA's prize-fund

AFC Liverpool v Bootle
The newly formed City Of Liverpool FC have been making headlines with some big crowds in the Merseyside non-league scene so it will be good for the above two clubs to get some exposure as the two Hallmark Security Premier Division sides face off against each other on The Road To Wembley. The game should attract a decent attendance but it won't be the biggest as AFC entertain COLFC on Wednesday 23rd November in the Liverpool Senior Cup. AFC currently ground share at Marine FC.  
1874 Northwich v Billingham Synthonia 
Stockport Town v Sunderland Ryhope CW
Penrith v Easington Colliery 
Guisborough Town v Padiham
Runcorn Town v Hallam 
South Shields v Runcorn Linnets 
Graham Fenton crossed over the River Tyne from rival's North Shields earlier this month to take up the joint management position with Lee Picton. The former Aston Villa and Blackburn Rovers player famously won the Vase with North Shields in 2015 so will want to take his new team all the way to Wembley. The visitors will provide stiff opposition as they are currently in fourth place in the Hallmark Security North West Counties League Premier Division. 1,166 saw South Shields last home league game so the attendance for this one will be in four-figures too. 
Charnock Richard v Barnoldswick Town 
Atherton LR v Chester-Le-Street Town
Ashton Town v Billingham Town 
AFC Emley v Chadderton 
Newcastle Benfield v Irlam 
Atherton Collieries v Jarrow Roofing Boldon CA

Stone Old Alleynians v Hucknall Town or Ashby Ivanhoe 
Handsworth Parramore v Shepshed Dynamo 
Bromsgrove Sporting v Cadbury Athletic 
Westfields v Walsall Wood 
Staveley MW v Pinxton 
Holwell Sports v AFC Mansfield 
Hinckley FC v Wolverhampton SC 
Wolvehampton Sporting Community of the West Midlands (Regional) League Premier Division make the trip to Hinckley FC - the club formed in January 2014 followed the liquidation of Hinckley United. It's a chance for WSC to get some revenge on Hinckley as they were well beaten 5-0 in the First Qualifying Round by them last season. 
Lichfield City v Shawbury United 
Kirby Muxloe v Hemsworth MW 
Penistone Church v Sherwood Colliery 
Bottesford Town v Haughmond 
Birstall United or Malvern Town v Worksop Town 
Rocester v Oakham United

Radford v Harborough Town 
Sporting Khalsa v Hanley Town 
Coventry Copsewood v Holbeach United 
Northampton Sileby Rangers v Oxhey Jets 
Thetford Town v Great Yarmouth Town 
Wadham Lodge v Hertford Town 
Wadham Lodge beat fellow Essex Senior League side Enfield 1893 FC in the last round in a game played on Friday evening. This game against SSMFL Hertford Town could also be played on the Friday evening or Sunday afternoon as Waltham Forest are also at home against Rothwell Corinthians. Whenever it's played the game will attract a few ground hoppers and a good number of supporters making the short trip from Hertfordshire.
Sporting Bengal United v Southall 
A repeat of the East v West London derby game played last season which Sporting Bengal won 6-2 before losing to Sleaford Town in the Second Round. Their best performance in the Vase came in 2011/12 when they reached the Third Round losing to rival's Bethnal Green United (now called Tower Hamlets FC). Southall FC famously reached the Final in 1986 losing to Halesowen Town at the old Wembley stadium. Since they were reformed they haven't got past the first round proper. 
Felixstowe &a Walton United v Haverhill Borough 
Broadfields United v London Bari 
Highmoor Ibis v Holmer Green 
Peterborough Sports v Swaffham Town 
Waltham Forest v Rothwell Corinthians 
Thrapston Town v Leverstock Green 
Canning Town v Biggleswade
Two sides who caused shocks against Essex Senior League opponents in the second qualifying round will play each other at The Terrance McMillan Stadium in the first round. Essex Olympian League side Canning Town beat Southend Manor on penalty kicks (4-5) after a 0-0 draw and Biggleswade won 1-2 at Takeley.  
Northampton On Chenecks v Ely City 
Gorleston v Barking 
Biggleswade United v Baldock Town 
A hotly anticipated local derby game that see's SSMFL Premier play SSMFL Division One. This should be a game not to miss at Second Meadow.
Flackwell Heath v Cockfosters 
The home side reached the Fifth Round in 2014/15 before losing at the first hurdle to Bowers & Pitsea who went on to reach the semi-final last season. Flackwell finished in third place of the Hellenic Premier Division last season and are currently second with two games in hand over table topper's Thatcham Town. They are rightly one of the favourites for the title. 'Foster's best performance in the competition has been to reach the second round in 91/92, 07/08, 12/13 and 13/14.
Walsham Le Willows v Tring Athletic 
Crawley Green v Basildon United 
Colney Heath v Hoddesdon Town 
A local SSMFL derby. The Lillywhites famously lifted the first FA Vase is 1975. Their best performance in the last decade has been to reach the third round in 09/10. 2014/15 saw The Magpies reach the third round which is their best performance. They were excluded in 14/15 for playing an inelligible player which subsequently saw them banned from the 2015/16 competition. A game which will be very close and could go either way.
