Lordswood must travel to the north east for their FA Vase fourth round tie while fellow Kent League side Tunbridge Wells have been drawn at home to holders Dunston UTS.

Both teams reached the last 32 of the national competition with wins at the weekend, each collecting a welcome £1,500 in prize money.

A further £2,000 is up for grabs in round four, with both teams knowing they are closing in on a Wembley final.

Lordswood will have a tough test in the next round. They beat Southend Manor 3-0 on Saturday and now face either Spennymoor Town or Billingham Synthonia.

Both teams play in Northern League, with Spennymoor currently sitting second in the table while Billingham are in a mid-table position. They meet on Tuesday night after Saturday’s original clash was postponed due to a frozen pitch.

Tunbridge Wells progressed through to the next stage after winning 2-1 at Binfield.

Their opponents, Dunston, are also from the Northern League and they won last year’s final against West Auckland at Wembley.

The 16 winners receive £2,000 from the FA’s prize fund with games scheduled for Saturday, January 19.
