The third round proper tie follows previous round victories against Reading City (1-0) and Worthing United (3-0), and it will be another good challenge for the side against Spartan South league opposition.

The club said: "Due to national government & FA guidance, we can strictly only allow players & management teams (and not fans) to travel from a Tier 3 area to our stadium.

"Therefore, ticket sales & matchday admission will only be open to spectators from a Tier 1 or Tier 2 region – unfortunately this means that no opposition spectators, parents or committee will be able to enter the stadium as Ealing, in line with changes across London, has recently been upgraded to a Tier 3 alert level.

"Photo ID / proof of address will also be required from all persons on entry to the ground to ensure we follow government regulation.

Thank-you for your understanding, and we look forward to another cup match on the Culver 3G before Christmas."

Littlehampton face similar hard work in ensuring rules are met for their Vase tie at home to Hanworth Villa.
