Two of our three remaining non-league sides have landed home draws in the FA Cup second qualifying round.

Thurlow Nunn Premier Division Kirkley & Pakefield's reward for progressing through three stages is a clash at Walmer Road against the winners of the replay between Peterborough Sports and Hitchin Town.

King's Lynn Town's second match in this term's competition is also at The Walks – where they eased past Wroxham 4-1 on Saturday. The Linnets will welcome Witham Town on Saturday September 26.

National League North Lowestoft Town's cup adventure begins on the same date with a lengthy trip to Bognor Regis Town.

Winners of the ties will pocket £4,500 prize money and move to within two victories of a potential money-spinning first-round proper clash against a Football League outfit.
