Poachers learn their FA Vase opponents
South Normanton Athletic will be the visitors to the DWB Stadium in the FA Vase later this month.
Thet beat Birstall United 6-1 yesterday to book their place in the 2nd Qualifying Round.
It will be the first ever meeting between the two sides. Derbyshire-based South Normanton, nicknamed The Shiners, were promoted at the end of last season and now play in the Midland League Premier Division, the same level as the United Counties League Premier Division.
The Poachers will be keen to progress after being knocked out of the FA Vase at the first hurdle in each of the last three seasons.
The tie takes place on Saturday 23 September, with prize money of £725 and a place in the 1st Round Proper up for grabs.
