Cray Valley Paper Mills FC have landed a plum FA Cup first-round trip to fellow south-east London side Charlton Athletic.

The eighth-tier non-league club - who currently compete in the Isthmian League South East Division - are into the competition proper for only the second time in their history after qualifying wins over Lordswood, Uxbridge, Northwood, Carshalton Athletic and Enfield Town.

Their short trip to The Valley in November may well be christened as the Kevin Lisbie derby, with the former Jamaica striker having spent 11 years at Charlton between 1996-2007 before a four-year stint at Cray Valley towards the end of his long career.

Lisbie’s son Kyrell also currently represents Cray Valley - who play their home matches at the Badgers Sports Ground in Eltham - and scored twice in Saturday’s 5-2 home win over Enfield in the fourth qualifying round.

Elsewhere in Sunday’s FA Cup first-round draw, Leyton Orient were paired alongside League One rivals Carlisle United at home.

Marine - knocked out by Tottenham in a historic clash in 2021 - host League Two Harrogate Town, while Horsham travel to Barnsley and either Billericay Town or Sheppey United will entertain fourth-tier Walsall at home.

Ramsgate are at home to either Hemel Hempstead or Woking, with Needham Market travelling to Chester if they can get past York City in a replay.

National League side Solihull Moors are handed a decent trip to third-tier Bolton Wanderers, with Derby County away at Crewe Alexandra and Portsmouth travelling to Chesterfield.
