Barnstaple Town and Bideford are both in the preliminary round of the FA Cup

Barnstaple Town and Bideford will both face opposition from the Toolstation Western League in the preliminary round of the Emirates FA Cup.

The draws for the round, and the extra preliminary round before were released on Friday.

Both clubs have home ties, with Barnstaple playing the winner of the match between Cleveland Town and Bitton.

Bideford will welcome the winner of the match between Wells City and Cribbs to the Sports Ground.

The ties will take place on Saturday, August 19, with the first qualifying round two weeks later.

Both clubs are likely to be spurred on by the success of fellow Evo-Stik League South West side Taunton Town, who reached the first round proper last year.

The clubs were also drawn in the Buildbase FA Trophy’s preliminary round, which takes place on October 7.

Barnstaple Town face a trip to Swindon Supermarine, while Bideford travel to Hampshire to play Moneyfields.

First round qualifying for the trophy takes place on October 28.

If successful, Barnstaple Town will have a home fixture against the winner of Slimbridge v Hartley Wintney.

Bideford will have an away trip the winner of the match between Fleet Town and Yate Town.

In the Buildbase FA Vase, Witheridge have a first round qualifying match against Cribbs on September 9.
