Home ties for Hadleigh and Brantham in FA Vase while Brightlingsea are away at 2012 winners Dunston

Suffolk duo Hadleigh United and Brantham Athletic have been handed home draws in the Fifth Round Proper of the FA Vase while Brightlingsea Regent will travel to 2012 winners of the competition, Dunston UTS.

Hadleigh, who received a bye into the last 16 of the competition following a brawl involving potential opponents AFC Bitton and Moneyfields, will host a Wisbech Town side who transferred away from the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division at the end of last campaign.

Wisbech, who now ply their trade in the United Counties League, will pose a tough test for Stuart Crawford’s side, especially considering the Fenmen finished as runners-up of the Thurlow Nunn last season.

Brantham Athletic will also enjoy home comforts against Leicestershire-based St Andrews FC if they can overcome high-flying Sussex opponents East Preston on Saturday (January 25).

The Imps saw their proposed last 32 fixture at East Preston postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

All last 16 ties are set to be played on the weekend of February 15.
