AFC Hornchurch have been drawn at home to Southern League Premier South side Harrow Borough in the first qualifying round of the FA Cup.

The Urchins enter the competition at this stage after being promoted to the Bostik Premier Division last season and will be keen to progress into the second qualifying round.

Jimmy McFarlane and his side will be keen to bag the £6,000 in prize money to help them in the league this season.

Neighbours Romford have also been drawn at home to Southern League Premier Central outfit Kettering Town.

Boro progressed into this round with a late 3-2 victory against Baldock Town in the Preliminary Round and bagged £2,890 in prize money.

Manager Paul Martin will be keen to progress and add another £6,000 to that tally and help boost the finances ahead of their planned move back to Romford.

Elsewhere, Essex Senior League side Sporting Bengal United will be hoping to cause an upset this evening in their FA Cup replay against Bostik North side Brentwood Town after drawing 1-1 on the weekend.

If Bengal can win at the Mile End Stadium they will earn themselves a home draw against Bostik Premier Division Haringey Borough.

The first qualifying round matches will be played on Saturday, September 8.
