Fermanagh have been drawn to face Ulster rivals Cavan in the first round of the All-Ireland Football Qualifiers.

The teams will meet at 1430 BST at Brewster Park on Sunday 1 July, with Roscommon facing Armagh at the same time on the same date at Dr Hyde Park.

On Saturday 30 June, Antrim will face London at Ruislip at 1300 BST, while Derry will take on Longford at Pearse Park at 1900.

The remaining four first-round fixtures will also be played on Saturday.

Fermanagh were defeated by Down in the Ulster SFC championship quarter-finals while Cavan fell to holders Donegal at the preliminary round stage.

Armagh will hope to overcome the disappointment of their Ulster quarter-final defeat by Tyrone.

Fermanagh will not have Seamus Quigley available for the opening qualifier after it was confirmed that he is no longer part of this year's squad.

Quigley starred for Fermanagh in the McKenna Cup and Football League but did not start in the Ulster Championship defeat by Down.

There were reports in the build-up to the Down game that Quigley had missed training sessions but manager Peter Canavan said after the match that the forward had not started because of a hamstring injury.

However, Quigley has not attended county training since the Down defeat and a Fermanagh spokesman confirmed to BBC Sport on Monday that this had led to the Roslea man being "dropped" from the squad.
