FA Cup first round proper - draw

The draw for the first round proper of the FA Cup was made today (7.30pm), writes James Barrett-Sterling.

After beating Dagenham and Redbridge 2-1 in the previous round we have now been handed a home game against Boston United.

Our opponents play in the National League North and currently sit 11th with five wins from 12 league games.

The tie will be played at on the weekend of 8th-11th November (date and kick-off TBC). This means our league game at home against Brightlingsea Regent will be postponed for the foreseeable.

But next up for the Robins is a big league encounter at Worthing this Tuesday night at Woodside Road (kick-off 7.45pm) - more info here: https://www.carshaltonathletic.co.uk/post/upnext
