Boston Town have been drawn to face Great Yarmouth Town at home in the extra preliminary round of the FA Cup.

Ian Dunn and Matt Hocking’s men entertain the Bloaters on Saturday, August 17.

Their opponents finished tenth in the Eastern Counties League Division One last season - a league that is one step lower in the non-league footballing pyramid than the United Counties League Premier, where the Poachers perform.

Victory in that tie would net the club £1,500 in prize money and bring about another home tie at Tattershall Road in the preliminary round, this time to another Norfolk side in Dereham Town on August 31.

The Magpies would be a tough test after finishing last season as Eastern Counties Premier champions.

As a result they were promoted to the Isthmian League Division One North - a step higher in the non-league pyramid than Town.

The winners of the preliminary round get £1,925 prize money.
