Worthing's hosts Hayes and Yeading are second in the Southern League premier south.

The first round ties are due to be played on the weekend of November 13/14 and the Rocks' and Worthing's planned Isthmian premier games that weekend will be postponed.

Both Sussex sides picked up £2,450 for winning in the third qualifying round - against Waltham Abbey and Chertsey respectively - and there's £3,000 up for grabs for first round winners.

Burgess Hill, Lewes and Horsham all exited the Trophy in the last round, while Eastbourne Borough enter at a later stage.
