Listen to our chat with Matthew Everett here.

The chairman of Thackley Juniors Football Club has told Pulse 1 & Pulse 2 it's an 'honour' to host the FA Cup first round draw.

The club has been selected to host the event on Monday night by the FA.

It was nominated along with hundreds of others and rewarded for it's achievements in grassroots football.

The FA also wanted to chose somewhere in the Bradford district to celebrate the Bantams' cup heroics last season where they beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The club chairman, Matthew Everett, said: "It's a massive honour.

"It's the talk of the schools and everyone on the streets- everywhere.

"It's memories the kids will be able to cherish forever".

The FA Cup itself will also be on display as well.

In the draw Bradford City will be ball number six.

FC Halifax Town and Guiseley will be number 58, after their 2-2 draw in the fourth qualifying on Saturday.
