Ryman North outfit Bury Town have been handed a tough tie in the draw for the first round of the FA Trophy.

The Blues, riding high in fifth position in Ryman North, will host Ryman Premier leaders, Dulwich Hamlet, at Ram Meadow, on Saturday, December 12.

Bury made it through to the next stage on Saturday, courtesy of a 4-2 victory over Thurrock, and are enjoying a good season in both league and cup, following relegation last season.

Elsewhere, National League side Braintree Town will host divisional rivals Bromley, while National League North side, Lowestoft Town, travel to National League South side, Concord Rangers.

The winners of these ties will pick up a cool £5,000 for progressing to the next stage.
