Eynesbury Rovers will face a difficult bow in this year’s FA Vase when they travel to Eastern Counties League Stowmarket Town in round two.

Stow were favourites for last year’s crown, which the final between Hebburn Town and Consett still to be played, before a shock exit in the last 16 at the hands of Wroxham.

They are still undefeated this year in the league but have drawn three of their seven games and currently sit eighth.

Eynesbury meanwhile were top of the Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division but two postponed games, the latest being a home match with Oxhey Jets on Saturday, has dropped them down to second, one point behind new pacesetters Biggleswade United.

Both teams have entered the competition at this stage after progressing deep into last year’s competition.

The winners of each tie in this round will receive £900 while the losers pocket £275.
