Gills ball 20 for FA Cup first round draw

Steve Evans' men await who they will play in the opening round of the Emirates FA Cup.

26 October 2020

The first round draw for the Emirates FA Cup takes place on Monday October 26.

Gillingham will be ball number 20 for tonight’s Emirates FA Cup first round draw.

The event will be broadcast live on BT Sport, and via the FA Cup’s Twitter and Facebook feeds at 7.10pm, prior to the fourth qualifying round tie between Bishops Stortford and St Albans City.
