Both St Ives Town and St Neots Town will be at home after the draw for the first round of the FA Trophy was made.
St Ives will host Northern Premier League Premier Division Grantham Town at Westwood Road, the same level as them, while St Neots will play Ives’s divisional rivals in the Southern League Premier Division Central.
It will not be something that will faze Barry Corr’s men, after they took their incredible scoring record this season up to 37 goals in 11 games with a 6-1 win over Worksop Town.
St Ives meanwhile needed penalties to overcome Stafford Rangers, the two sides drawing 1-1 after 90 minutes thanks to a late goal from Dylan Williams.
Kings Langley advanced with a 4-1 victory at home to Brightlingsea Regent while Grantham picked up a 2-0 win away to Yaxley.
