Sunderland RCA have drawn Garforth Town at home in the FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round.
Garforth Town play their football in the Northern Counties East Premier League - the same league as familiar Vase opponents Bridlington Town, Handsworth Parramore, Hemsworth Miners Welfare and AFC Mansfield.
The match will be played at Meadow Park on Saturday, 5 August, with a 3.00pm kick-off.

Our competitive season starts, as usual nowadays, with the Extra Preliminary Round of the FA Cup on 5 August, which is not ideal but there you are. At the time of writing we don’t know our opponents but we will do by the time of the SAFC friendly match, listen for announcements or check the website or Twitter for details.
In the FA Vase our efforts of last season will be rewarded with exemption until the Second Round Proper in November. Somewhere over 600 clubs will play in the Vase this season, starting in September and we won’t enter until the last 128. With South Shields taking promotion it looks like, unless rules have changed, that only ourselves, Shildon, Morpeth and Billingham Town will be exempt to that stage this season, fewer than in the last half a dozen years.
