AFC Sudbury will host Gosport Borough in the First Round of the FA Trophy, while Leiston will travel to National League Premier side Bromley, provided they defeat Eastbourne Borough in tomorrow night’s replay.

Elsewhere, Braintree Town, who secured a superb 5-4 victory at Southport in the National League on Saturday, will host Torquay United, while Chelmsford City will welcome Hitchin Town to north Essex.

Leiston, who have signed Lowestoft Town midfielder Joe Marsden, travel to Sussex tonight hoping to overcome their Conference South opponents, having rescued a 1-1 draw, courtesy of Jack Ainsley’s last-minute penalty at Victory Road, on Saturday.

AFC Sudbury, meanwhile, progressed to the next stage courtesy of a 3-1 victory at Kings Langley, on Saturday, while Anthony Church’s goal put Chelmsford through to the next round - the Clarets securing a 1-0 win over Taunton Town, at the weekend.
