Jay Saunders' men made it through the Third Qualifying Round on Sunday with goals from Norman Wabo (2) and Noel Leighton (2) claiming a 4-2 win at Aylesbury United.

Cray Wanderers' reward for a 3-0 victory at Whitehawk on Saturday is a trip to Uxbridge or Hayes & Yeading.

The ties were due to be played on November 14 but that looks to be delayed to December at the earliest now, given the Prime Minister announced a second national lockdown on Saturday evening.

The FA said: "We remain in dialogue with the UK Government in relation to men’s ‘non-elite’ football in England and will release the fixture dates for both the Trophy and the Vase in due course."

It presents the FA and National League clubs with issues on their fixtures next month.

The Second Round - featuring National League South clubs - cannot continue as planned on December 5 if the previous rounds have not been completed and the same applies to National League clubs who have a blank weekend in their fixture schedule to play the Third Round on December 19.

Prize money for the First Round is £4,500 for winning teams while losing sides will pocket £1,250.
