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.

Gary Setchell’s men enter at the preliminary round stage and will host either Coleshill Town or Kidsgrove Athletic at the Elgoods Fenland Stadium on October 13.

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