Hornchurch will face an away trip to National League South side Hampton & Richmond Borough in the third qualifying round of the FA Cup.

The Urchins progressed into this stage of the competition after sealing a 2-1 victory against Bostik South East side East Grinstead Town thanks to goals from George Purcell and Sean Marks despite a consolation goal from George Landais at Bridge Avenue on Saturday.

They also sealed a 1-0 victory against Southern League Premier South side Harrow Borough in the first qualifying round thanks to a Brad Warner goal.

Jimmy McFarlane’s side bagged £6,000 in prize money for their first qualifying round win before bagging another £9,000 for winning on Saturday.

They will now be keen to progress through another round of the competition and bag £15,000 in prize money to help them in the league this season.

Their opponents The Beavers have got their season off to a flying start under new manager Gary McCann who joined in the summer.

They currently sit third in their league after ten games and they eased through their second qualifying round tie with a 3-0 victory against Burgess Hill Town.

Elsewhere, Billericay Town have been handed a home tie against Bostik Premier Division side Whitehawk at the AGP Arena.

Dean Brennan’s side cruised to a comfortable 4-1 win against Burnham in their second qualifying round tie on the weekend.
