We will be on the road in all three FA competitions as we have today learned of our opponents in the early rounds of the FA Cup, FA Vase and FA Youth Cup.

All three draws were released by the FA at 1pm on Friday afternoon and will see us travelling to Kent in the FA Cup, but remaining in Sussex for both the Vase and Youth Cup.

Our FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round fixture takes us to Canterbury City on Saturday 6th August, and then the winner of that tie faces either Athletic Newham or Sheppey United away two weeks later.

In the FA Vase 1st Qualifying Round we have been handed an away tie at SCFL Division One side Hailsham Town. A home fixture against Eastbourne Town awaits in the 2nd Qualifying Round.

And a hat-trick of away draws sees our Under-18s face a trip to Worthing United in the FA Youth Cup Preliminary Round in the week commencing 29th August.

Elsewhere this week, we also learned of our opponents in the Southern Combination Football League cups – the Peter Bentley Challenge Cup and Under-23 Challenge Cup.

Incredibly, in both competitions we have been drawn away at Little Common. The dates for these fixtures have not yet been confirmed.

All fixtures are subject to change so keep an eye on social media for any alterations to the schedule.
