Byes in FA Cup and Trophy Prelims

1 week ago By Neil McGowan

We have been exempted from the Preliminary Rounds of both the FA Cup and Trophy and will visit Dunkirk in our opening FA Youth Cup tie.

We enter the FA Emirates Cup at the First Qualifying Round on Saturday 8 September and the FA Buildbase Trophy at the same stage on Saturday 27 October.

Prize money for the FA Cup has been doubled this year, with First Qualifying Round winners receiving £6,000. A club entering at the First Qualifying stage and reaching the First Round proper would pick up £55,000 in prize money.

In the FA Youth Cup, we travel to Dunkirk in the Preliminary Qualifying Round, to be played week commencing Monday 3 September.
The winners of that tie will be away in the First Qualifying Round to Deeping Rangers or Harrowby United. This game will be played week commencing Monday 17 September.
