Maidstone will host Salisbury City at the Gallagher Stadium later this month after being drawn to face them in the FA Trophy first round.

The Stones made it through to the first round proper after beating Whitehawk on Saturday in the third qualifying tie infront of almost 1,600 fans.

Ebbsfleet United have been drawn at home to fellow Blue Square Bet Premier side Hereford, while Tony Burman's Dartford must travel to either Kingstonian or Brentwood Town.

Welling, who beat Cray Wanderers 1-0 on Saturday in the final qualifier, will host Newport and Bromley will also be at home, if they can overcome Staines in a replay.

The two sides drew 1-1 at Hayes Lane on Saturday and Boreham Wood await the winners.

Tonbridge Angles have been handed an away tie but must wait to find out if they face Shortwood Town or Merthyr Town. Saturday's game ended level at 1-1.

Dover have been handed another away draw in the first round, if they can overcome Chelmsford in their replay. The winners of that tie face Leiston or Hampton & Richmond Borough.

All first round ties are due to be played on November 24.

First Round Draw: Kingstonian or Brentwood Town v Dartford, Welling v Newport, Ebbsfleet v Hereford, Bromley or Staines v Boreham Wood, Shortwood Town or Merthyr Town v Tonbridge, Maidstone v Salisbury, Leiston or Hampton & Richmond Borough v Chelmsford or Dover.
