The draw has been made.

The draw for the FA Cup Third Round has been made ahead of Boreham Wood’s second-round meeting with St Albans.

As the oldest cup competition celebrates its 150th year, the Third Round sees both the Premier League and SkyBet Championship sides enter the tournament, with the lower-league sides left dreaming of a glamour fixture against higher opposition.

All fixtures will take place on the weekend of 8 January 2022.

Last season’s winners Leicester City will look to defend their crown as they face Watford with Manchester United hosting Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa in another all-Premier League tie.
