Newport County travel to National League North side Brackley Town in the FA Cup first round proper on the weekend of starting 6 November.

Brackley are managed by ex-Wrexham boss Kevin Wilkin and have former Newport defender Eddie Odhiambo in their ranks.

"There was always a decent chance of playing one of my old clubs," tweeted Odhiambo.

Brackley beat Bamber Bridge 3-0 in the first qualifying round last weekend to enter Monday's draw.

Tanzanian Odhiambo arrived at Newport in July, 2010 and after being released joined Gateshead the following summer.
