A MOUTH-WATERING FA Trophy tie lies in prospect for East Anglian football fans following today’s first-round proper draw.

If Leiston can overcome Hampton & Richmond Borough and Chelmsford City can defeat Dover Athletic in tomorrow night’s third qualifying round replays, the two sides will meet at Victory Road on Saturday, November 24.

Leiston drew 1-1 with Hampton & Richmond Borough at Victory Road on Saturday - the same scoreline as that between Chelmsford City and Dover Athletic at Melbourne Stadium.

The winners of tomorrow night’s replays stand to pick-up £4,000 in prize money, with a £5,000 purse on offer for the winners of the first-round proper ties.

Braintree Town, who enter the competition at the first round proper stage, have been drawn at home to Havant & Waterlooville, while Cambridge United will travel to Billericay Town and Dorchester Town will entertain Luton Town.
