Aidy Boothroyd’s men will face the Skrill South side on the weekend of November 9/10.

Daventry Town are also on the road, and they face a daunting trip to Sky Bet League Two high-flyers Chesterfield.

Corby were handed a home tie against another non-League side, Dover Athletic, who knocked AFC Rushden & Diamonds out of the competition at the third qualifying round stage.

Brackley Town, who first have a replay to deal with at Barrow in midweek after the teams drew 0-0 on Saturday, were handed a tough away trip as well, as they will go to league one side Gillingham.

The draw was staged at London’s Grand Connaught Rooms and was made by former Liverpool and Aston Villa manager Gerard Houllier, and ex-Arsenal and England midfielder Ray Parlour.

Daventry made it through to the first round proper for the first time in the club’s history with a thumping 6-1 final qualfying round win at Hartley Wintney on Saturday.

Darran Foster’s men actually went 1-0 down in Hampshire, but roared back to claim an historic win thanks to goals from Adam Confue, Ashley Robinson, Liam Dolman, Neil King, Ross Oulton and Tom Lorraine.

Corby pulled off an impressive 3-1 win in south Wales against Colwyn Bay.

Late goals from Nathan Rooney and Sam Ives proved to be decisive for the Steelmen as they won away from Steel Park for the first time this season.

At 1-1 with 10 minutes left on the clock, a replay on Wednesday looked to be on the cards but the visitors, who were good value for their victory, found an extra gear.

They had taken an early lead through Stuart Hendrie.
