Bury Town have been drawn against Skrill South league leaders Eastleigh in the First Round Proper of the FA Trophy.

After thumping fellow Ryman Premier Division rivals Grays 5-1 on Saturday, the Blues have another home tie to look forward to in the next round with the arrival of high-flying Eastleigh who edged past Maidstone United 2-1 at the weekend.

Meanwhile, if AFC Sudbury are able to overcome Tonbridge Angel in their third round qualifying replay tomorrow, they will face St Albans City, members of the Southern Premier League, in the next stage.

Sudbury forced a replay with a late equaliser courtesy of James Baker against Tonbridge on Saturday and will look to go one further and win with home support tomorrow.

The draw, which was made earlier today, also saw Braintree pitted against Conference Premier rivals Welling.

The games are set to be played on the weekend of November 30 as the aforementioned teams look to progress into the final 32 of the competition.

In the FA Vase, Hadleigh could potentially host fellow Thurlow Nunn Premier outfit Ely City in the third round proper should Ely beat Welwyn Garden City in Wednesday’s replay.
