Bayliss was on target for the Poachers against Carlton Town and Hednesford Town, while Clifton scored twice for the Pilgrims in their second round qualifying replay at Haughmond.

They will share space on the ball with players such as Alexis Sanchez, Willian and Will Grigg.

Andy Ambler, The FA’s director of professional game relations, said: “One of the most special things about The Emirates FA Cup is that a goalscorer in the extra-preliminary round shares the same accolade as some of football’s most famous names.

“Over three thousand goals have been scored in this season’s competition, from all levels of the football pyramid and the 137 from across the country are representative of all who have contributed to this season’s competition.”
