Hampton and Richmond could be facing Derby County in the FA Cup First Round were they to win their Fourth Qualifying Round replay against Torquay United.
Drawing Derby County, the two-time champions of England and FA Cup winners in 1946, is arguably the biggest tie possible for Hampton as the team ninth in League One could be travelling to South West London.
The Beavers will play their replay tomorrow night against Torquay of the National League at the Rocket Hospitality Beveree Stadium to see who will face x in the first round.
In Hampton's last two trips to the FA Cup First Round have seen them play league opposition, losing on both occasions to Oldham Athletic by a single day.
The last time the Rams had to even compete in the First Round was in the 1985-86 season, when they beat Crewe Alexandra 5-1 before eventually reaching the fifth round.
The season before they were knocked out in the First Round when they lost 2-1 away at Hartlepool United.
The game would be the first time these two teams have met and will take place on the weekend of the 5th November at home.
