Wisbech Town will kick off the 2018/19 season in the FA Cup.
The Fenmen will travel to lower-level Cogenhoe United in an extra preliminary round tie on Saturday, August 11.
Wisbech completed a double – 6-3 away and 3-0 at home – over the Northamptonshire side when they did battle in the United Counties League Premier Division last season.
The winners of the tie will earn more than £2,000 in prize money and progress into a preliminary round clash at either Northampton side Sileby Rangers or Ely City.
Wisbech’s promotion to Step 4 football means they will also play in the FA Trophy this season.

The winners of that tie will earn £3,000.
