Lewes will face either Redhill, Whyteleafe or Corinthian Casuals away in the First Qualifying Round of the FA Cup this season.

The ties for that round are scheduled to take place on September 8 and winners receive £3,000.

The FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round, scheduled for Saturday, August 11, sees Ringmer travel to Erith Town, Peacehaven entertain Banstead Athletic, Hailsham Town host Greenwich Borough, AFC Uckfield go to Lingfield and Crowborough Athletic visit Chichester City. Winners of ties in this round receive £1,000.

If they make it through that round, the Preliminary Round takes place on August 25, where Ringmer would have to travel to Faversham Town. Peacehaven would have to make a trip to Chatham Town, while Hailsham would have another home tie, against Hassocks or Sidley United.

AFC Uckfield would have another away tie, at either Deal Town or Ashford United, while Crowborough would also travel again, this time to Chipstead. Winners of the Preliminary Round would receive £1,750.

Should Ringmer make it to the First Qualifying Round on September 8, they would have a home tie against Ryman Premier outfit Margate.

Peacehaven would have an all-Sussex tie against another Ryman Premier side, Hastings United, at the Pilot Field.

AFC Uckfield would have to travel to Slough Town or Corinthian or Croydon. Hailsham would have yet another home draw but would have to entertain yet another Ryman Premier outfit, this time Cray Wanderers.

Crowborough would have a home tie against Maidstone United, Shoreham or Colliers Wood United.
