Buildbase FA Vase first and second qualifying round draw 2017/18

Chatham Town - back in the FA Vase for the first time in 17 years - start their campaign with a First Qualifying Round trip to Redhill.

The Maidstone Road club went out of the competition at the same stage in season 2000/1, beaten 3-1 at Brockenhurst, before going onto win the Kent League title for a fourth time, winning promotion to the Southern League.

Two all Southern Counties East League ties see Erith & Belvedere host Holmesdale and FC Elmstead entertain Whitstable Town, while Lydd Town, one of several clubs making their Vase debut, begin with a trip to Combined Counties League Chessington and Hook.

Winners in the First Qualifying Round will earn £550, rising to £725 in the second as well as a place in the First Round proper.
