Boston Town’s road to Wembley will begin south of the county at Deeping Rangers.

The Poachers will travel to face their UCL Premier and county rivals in the extra-preliminary round of the Emirates FA Cup on August 15.

A home tie against Dereham Town will be the winners’ prize a fortnight later.

Town have been drawn at home in the FA Vase, facing Great Yarmouth Town in the first qualifying round on September 5.

If they win that, they will face Deeping again, this time at home in the second qualifying round on October 3.

The regiuonal draws have thrown up no real surprises for Mark Angel’s side.

Boston have been drawn to face Yarmouth in cup action during the past two seasons, also facing Dereham in the FA Cup two campaigns ago.

Meanwhile, the Poachers have been drawn at home to Stewarts & Lloyds Corby in the United Counties League Knockout Cup.

A date is yet to be confirmed for the contest.
