SLOUGH Town have been drawn away to Hendon of the Bostik League Premier Division in the third qualifying round of the FA Trophy.
Forty third qualifying round matches are set to take place on Saturday, November 25 with the winning clubs set to receive £5,000 from the FA prize fund.
The draw took place at Wembley Stadium this lunchtime.
Slough comfortably overcame Maldon & Tiptree 4-1 on Saturday to put their name in the hat for this afternoon’s draw. James Dobson netted twice for the Rebels while Matt Lench found the net for the seventh time in three matches and Lee Togwell completed the scoring late on.
Hendon remain in contention at the top of the Bostik Premier Division having won 10 of their 16 league matches to date. They trail leaders Dulwich Hamlet, who the Rebels put out of the FA Cup earlier in the season, by six points.
Like Slough Hendon eased through Saturday’s second qualifying round tie, beating Burgess Hill Town 3-0 at home with goals from Niko Muir (two) and Zak Joseph.
Last season’s Trophy winners, York City, begin their defence of the title at this stage of the competition and have been drawn at home to Coalville Town.
*In the third round draw for the FA Vase, which also took place this lunchtime, Windsor were handed a trip to Walton & Hersham, currently second in the Combined Counties Premier Division. The tie will take place on Saturday, December 2.
Winning clubs will receive £1125 from the FA prize fund and losing clubs will receive £375.
