Pack your overnight bag, Hornets fans, as we’re off to Carlisle in the first round of the Emirates FA Cup!

Yes, the road to Wembley got a little longer this afternoon as the draw, held at Wembley this afternoon and shown ‘live’ on ITV, paired the two clubs together for the first ever time and means Horsham players and supporters will have a round-trip of almost 700 miles with the Cumbrians based just eight miles from the Scottish border.

Carlisle, who reached the quarter-finals in 1975, currently sit second bottom of League Two and average crowds of just over 4,000 this season.

The tie will take place over the weekend of 5/6/7/8 November.
