In the Buildbase FA Vase, Newhaven are exempt until the First Round Proper and therefore miss the first two qualifying rounds of the competition.

That match will be played at the Trafalgar Ground in the week commencing Monday 7th September, with the winners facing a home tie against either Worthing or Guildford City in the First Qualifying Round.
