Essex v Suffolk derby in FA Cup

BRAINTREE Town will host Lowestoft Town in the fourth qualifying round of the FA Cup.

Today’s draw pitted the Blue Square Bet Premier side at home to their Ryman League Premier Division Suffolk neighbours, who won 1-0 at St Albans on Saturday.

Bury Town’s reward for their impressive 4-0 victory over Hampton & Richmond Borough is a tough-looking away trip to Dorchester Town, who currently sit second in Blue Square Bet South.

Chelmsford City, who are fourth in Blue Square Bet South, have been drawn at home to East Thurrock United, who are 11th in the Ryman League Premier Division at present.

Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division sole survivors Dereham Town will be away to South Park, if they can overcome Metropolitan Police in Wednesday night’s replay after Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Aldiss Park. Surrey-based South Park play in the Cherry Red Records Combined Counties League Premier Division.
