King’s Lynn Town and replay-bound Wroxham learn their FA Trophy fate

King's Lynn Town have been handed another home draw in the next round of the FA Trophy while Wroxham will play away - again - if they win their replay tomorrow night.

Gary Setchell's Lynn, who play at Step Four of the non-league ladder, beat highly-rated Barwell (Step Three) 1-0 at The Walks on Saturday to seal their place in the second qualifying round.

They will welcome another higher-level side, in the shape of Ryman Premier Division strugglers Carshalton Athletic (Step Three), after today's draw was made.

Surrey-based Carshalton, currently third from bottom in their league, beat Heybridge Swifts (Step Four) 3-0 on Saturday.

David Batch's Ryman Division One North Wroxham (Step Four) held higher-level Canvey Island (Step Three) on the road at the weekend in a goalless game.

The second qualifying round ties will be played on Saturday October 27. Winners will pocket �3,250 prize money and progress to the third qualifying round - where they will be joined by Blue Square North and South (Step Two) teams.
