MAIDENHEAD United have been drawn away at Woking in the first round of the FA Trophy.

The Magpies, who drew 1-1 with the Cards in the league just a couple of weeks ago, will travel to the Laithwaite Community Stadium on Saturday, December 16.

The winners will receive a place in the last 32 of the competition and £6,000 from the FA Prize fund.

The club’s last met in this competition just two seasons ago when Woking scored six second half goals in a 6-1 second round victory.

United won by the odd goal in nine on their only other meeting in the competition back in 1985.

Maidenhead are yet to better their run to the quarter-finals of the competition under John Dreyer in 2004, while Woking have lifted the Trophy on three occasions in a four year spell in the mid 1990s.

Slough’s reward if they can overcome Hendon in tomorrow night’s (Tuesday) replay at Arbour Park, is a home tie against either Bath City or Margate. That game will also take place on Saturday, December 16.

The Rebels were minutes away from a place in the first round on Saturday having taken the lead against Hendon with a strike from James Dobson.

However, Kezie Ibe’s 90th minute equaliser means the two teams will have to do it all again at Arbour Park tomorrow (Tuesday), 7.45pm kick-off.

The remaining tickets for Slough Town’s FA Cup second round tie against Rochdale on Monday (December 4) will go on sale at tomorrow night’s replay. A limited number of East Stand tickets and general admission tickets for the BT Sport televised tie are still available and will be sold on a first come, first served basis from about 7pm.
