The Alex face Cheltenham in FA Cup first round.Crewe Alexandra have been drawn to play Cheltenham Town away in the 2016/17 FA Cup First Round. Cheltenham previously defeated Crewe 2-0 in League Two earlier in the season and we will once again face our former player Billy Waters.
The tie will take place at Whaddon Road on the weekend of November 5/6 2016.
Crewe lost 1-0 in the first round to Eastleigh at The Alexandra Stadium last season, Ben Garratt being sent off before sub keeper Danijel Nizic gave away a penalty late on for the winning goal.
The Alex are looking to progress to round two for the first time since 2012/2013 after a 4-1 home win over Wycombe, before losing 1-0 to Burton Albion in the Second Round.
Match information and ticket prices will be announced in due course.
