National Cup Draws

By Gary Brigden

The opening rounds of the FA Cup, FA Vase and FA Youth Cup were drawn today, and its a couple of home ties for us.

In the FA Cup Exxtra-Preliminary Round, the lads have been drawn at home to Combined Counties Premier Division newcomers Molesey.

Molesey will of course be no strangers to most of you, having won the Combined Counties Premier Division back in the 2014/15 season and spending the next four seasons at Step 4. They are back with us now after last years relegation, but with the experienced Craig Lewington at the helm they will no doubt be one of the stronger sides in the division, and this will be a very tough tie.

The winners will host either Southern Combination Division 1 side Bexhill Utd, or Southern Combination Premier Division side Eastbourne Town in the Preliminary Round.

In the FA Youth Cup, the Bostik 18's have been given their first ever home FA Cup tie (ok, so they have only entered the competition once before, but still...), as they face tough opposition in the shape of Worthing.

The winners will be on their travels to either Whitehawk or Walton Casuals.

In the FA Vase the first team are exempt to the First Round Proper, but no doubt will get one of the surviving CCL sides in that round!
