Other teams involved are from the Isthmian south east division and SCFL.

Little Common can look forward to a home tie against the famous Corinthian Casuals, while Haywards Heath will be at home to Hanwell Town.

Crawley Down Gatwick also have home advantage, they will face Hendon - and Hastings, after a late winner against Herne Bay on Saturday - will be at home to Chesham United.

Steyning have already won through two rounds and they will be at home again next time - Sheppey Utd their visitors.

Burgess Hill - through because visitors Hollands and Blair declined to travel to play them on Saturday after Covid-19 positive tests were revealed among Hillians players - will be away to Cray Valley PM

Chichester City came through last night's (Monday) preliminary round tie away to Basingstoke, winning 3-1 on penalties after a 2-2 draw, and they will visit Cribbs in the next round.

Curiously Newhaven were also named in the draw on the FA website - that despite them having lost 2-1 to Corinthian in the last round!
