Crewe Draw Cheltenham in FA Cup First Round

17 October 2016

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 seasonĀ  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.
