Maidstone at home in FA Cup

The 134th FA Cup competition has its Second Round Qualifying on 27 September, with the draw having been made at Wembley Stadium on Monday

There are 79 ties and the successful teams will be two more wins away from a possible First Round Proper match against the likes of Coventry City, Preston North End or Sheffield United. They will also be £4,500 richer via The FA’s Prize Fund.

Maidstone United were the weekend’s top scorers with ten against Littlehampton Town at The Gallagher Stadium and the Isthmian Premier’s table-toppers have been handed a home tie with Brentwood Town, who are a division lower. 

King’s Lynn Town, who notched seven against Boston Town, also came out first – with a Second Round Qualifying tie against Hednesford Town, who lost 3-2 to Middlesbrough in the Fourth Round Proper at the Riverside in 1997.

Worthing, who achieved a surprise but fully merited 3-0 win at Dulwich Hamlet on Saturday, now face a potentially even more difficult tie at Chelmsford City of the Conference South. 

FC Romania, playing in their first-ever FA Cup, welcome Sutton United to Cheshunt in one of the round’s glamour ties. Sutton memorably knocked out top-division Coventry 25 years ago.
