Home tie for Leiston in FA Cup

LEISTON have been handed another home FA Cup draw as they sit on the cusp of the First Round proper.

But it will not be easy for Mark Morsley’s men who will play the winners of tomorrow night’s replay between Canvey Island and Dartford.

Both opponents are in higher leagues than Leiston who booked their place in the Fourth Qualifying Round with a 5-0 win against North Greenford United on Saturday.

Bury Town and Chelmsford are also still in the competition but must first look to overcome replays against Staines Town and Bromley respectively.

If successful, Bury will visit Hythe Town while Chelmsford will travel to lower league Carshalton Athletic, victors of Braintree Town in the Third Qualifying Round.
