FOUR Ridgeon League sides go in search of a £4,500 bounty on Saturday as they continue their quest for FA Cup glory.
Premier Division sides Leiston, Needham Market, Stanway Rovers and Wroxham all face sides two League's above them in the non-league pyramid with only Wroxham drawn at home.
League high-fliers Leiston travel to Carshalton Athletic who are currently third and boast the Ryman League's leading scorer Richard Jolly.
The Victory Road side who lost their unbeaten record in midweek at Lowestoft have a full squad to take down to Surrey and should be quietly confident in causing an upset. Assistant Manager Ian Smith travelled to Tooting last weekend to watch their opponents in action and feels Leiston could surprise the Colston Avenue side.

Stanway Rovers travel to mid table BGB Southern Premier League Hitchin Town who Haverhill Rovers took to a replay last season. Stanway could trouble Hitchin offensively although this week striker Ray Turner joined fellow Essex side Halstead Town. Finally Wroxham face a Heybridge Swifts side that currently prop up the Ryman Premier Division.
The match has had to be switched to Plantation Park, home of Norwich United due to a wedding at Trafford Park and Heybridge refused to play on either Friday or Sunday.
