Hornchurch have been handed a long trip to Hereford in their third qualifying round of the FA Cup.
Urchins booked their place with a 2-1 win at Bostik North rivals Hertford Town on Saturday, when Leon McKenzie cancelled out the home side’s opener.
George Purcell then netted a late winner, before he was given his marching orders for retaliation in stoppage time.
Victory saw Urchins pick up £4,500 in prize money, having already pocketed £4,925 from beating Brentwood and Romford in the earlier rounds.
And another £7,000 will be up for grabs on September 30, when they travel to Edgar Street to take on the in-form Evo Stik South Premier side, who beat Kempston Rovers 4-0 at the weekend after an 8-0 win over Godalming Town in the first qualifying round.
The Bulls beat Royston Town (4-1) and Stratford Town (5-2) in between their two FA Cup ties and will provide a tough test.
