FA Cup second qualifying round draw

The draw for the FA Cup second qualifying round has been made at Wembley.

Kent's National League South clubs enter at this stage, with Maidstone, Dartford, Tonbridge and Welling joining the county's remaining Isthmian League and Southern Counties East sides.

The Stones, who've reached the second round proper in three of the past five years, start their campaign at home to Isthmian Premier Cheshunt.

Dartford, who are searching for a new manager, visit Met Police or Horsham, but will Tony Burman still be in caretaker charge?

Tonbridge host Eastbourne Borough in all-National League South tie while Welling will be favourites to progress at home to Chipstead of Isthmian South Central.

Margate's reward for winning at Horsham YMCA is a home tie against National South club Concord Rangers, while Folkestone - 4-0 winners at Whitstable on Saturday - visit Southern Premier Central outfit Kings Langley.

Cray Wanderers entertain Isthmian North club Soham Town Rangers while Ramsgate will go to Essex Senior League Hadley if they beat Arundel in a replay.

Sutton Athletic, 13th in Southern Counties East Division 1, have a big incentive to win their replay against Flackwell Heath.

The prize is a home tie against Slough Town, who play four leagues above them in National League South.

Ties will be played on September 21. Winning clubs earn £6,750 in prize money, with £2,250 for losing clubs.
