After hearing the draw, Notts County manager Neal Ardley told www.nottscountyfc.co.uk: "Any team who wins a promotion is a decent side – we saw that with Altrincham, we had to be really on our mettle to earn the right to beat them.

"King’s Lynn are no different in the sense that they know how to win games.

"Yes, they’ve had a tough start to the season but they’ve played two very strong teams in our league.

"I still expect them to be competitive in the league and away from home it’s a tough tie."

Meanwhile, Chorley received a bye into the First Round Proper.

This was due to the winding-up last month of Macclesfield Town, with the Silkmen’s omission leaving an odd number of sides in the northern section.

Chorley were the final northern side to be drawn out will receive the same prize money (£9,375) as the winning teams in the Fourth Qualifying Round.

There were 63 clubs involved in the draw with 31 ties being pulled out, split into 12 ties in the North section and 19 ties in the South region.
