Wisbech Town’s reward for a 4-2 away win in the FA Vase on Saturday is a fourth-round trip to Gornal Athletic.
Steve Appleby’s Fenmen - who triumphed at Bradford-based Thackley at the weekend - will travel to the West Midlands to face a Gornal side who beat United Counties Premier Division Boston Town 1-0 to book their place in the last 32.
The Midland Football Alliance Division One outfit’s victory saw the village club, who play near Dudley, reach the fourth round for the first time in their history. They’ve already knocked out Coventry Sphinx, Lye Town, Nuneaton Griff and Atherstone Town in this season’s competition.
Wisbech reached the last 32 last time round before they were knocked out by eventual winners Dunston UTS after a replay defeat ended their dream of reaching a Wembley final.
The fourth-round tie will be played on January 19 and the winners will pocket £2,000 prize money as well as a place in the last 16.
