Our remaining representatives in this year's FA Cup have this afternoon discovered who they landed in the draw for the third qualifying round at Wembley.
King's Lynn Town's reward for stunning Conference North Hednesford Town on Saturday is another home tie – this time against Evo-Stik Division One North Lancaster City. Their opponents, who play one level below the Linnets, have won three matches on the road to set up the clash on Saturday October 11 and are managed by former QPR team-mates Darren Peacock and Trevor Sinclair (assistant).
Lowestoft Town and Norwich United – both of whom have home replays to get through tomorrow night before they can think about the next round – have been handed tough tests.
The Trawlerboys will visit same-league Tamworth while the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division Planters take on another team from the Linnets' Evo-Stik Premier Division. This time, if they are successful in 24 hours against Barwell, they will welcome table-topping Curzon Ashton.
Winners of third qualifying round matches will pocket £7,500 prize money and as a result be just one more victory away from the first round proper and the chance to take on an opponent from the Football League.
