Bolton will host Stockport County in the first round of the 2021/22 Emirates FA Cup.

The draw, which was conducted at Wembley Stadium on Sunday afternoon, will see 48 clubs from Leagues One and Two joined by a total of 32 non-league outfits who have progressed through from the fourth qualifying round.

Wanderers, who have been eliminated at the first-round stage in each of the last two seasons, will come up against County for the first time since 2002 when Gudni Bergsson, Henrik Pedersen, Michael Ricketts and an own-goal from Karim Fradin saw Sam Allardyce's side advance into the fourth round.

The sides have met on another two prior occasions in the competition, with Bolton winning 5-1 in a third-round tie at Burnden Park in 1947, while the Hatters were victorious in the only previous first-round meeting - winning 4-1 at Edgeley Park in January 1910.

The latest clash of the local neighbours will take place between the dates of November 5-8, with the winners taking £22,629 from the prize fund.
