Peterborough United have been drawn against National League side Bromley for their FA Cup First Round tie, set to be played on the weekend of the 10th November.

The Posh will travel to face National League side Bromley F.C at Hayes Lane to play out their First Round tie on their artificial pitch.

Steve Evans will be hoping his side can emulate the club’s FA Cup performances of recent years. The Posh went through to the Fourth Round of the FA Cup in 2016, and were drew against West Bromwich Albion in their clash. Then-manager Graham Westley led his side to a 2-2 draw at The Hawthorns, before losing on penalties in the replay.

The following season, Grant McCann led his side to the Third Round in 2017, defeating Chesham United and Notts County along the way. However, their run came to an end as they were drawn against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The Posh were defeated 4-1, but put on an impressive display and arguably deserved more from the game.

Earlier this year, Grant McCann’s side defeated Tranmere Rovers 5-0 after a 1-1 draw in the First Round. They were then held 1-1 by Woking, before beating the non-League side 5-2 at home. The Posh then traveled to Villa Park to play Aston Villa, and recorded a memorable 3-1 win after a scintillating performance. Their run came to an end in the Fourth Round once again, as Premier League side Leicester City thrashed The Posh 5-1 at London Road.

Steve Evans will hope that his side’s impressive away form can continue in the FA Cup, as they remain unbeaten on the road this season.

Bromley currently sit in 15th place in the National League, but are in decent form heading into their next games. Neil Smith’s side are on a run of four League games without a loss, and will be hoping they can cause a First Round upset.
