Boston Town will set off on the long and winding road to Wembley this afternoon.

The Poachers will kick off their FA Cup campaign as they host Walsham Le Willows in the extra-premilnary round.

Prizemoney of £1,500 and a place in the preliminary round awaits the winners of today’s contest.

Walsham Le Willows play in the Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties League Premier Division, the same level as UCL Premier side Boston.

The Willows have begun their season well with victories against Ely City and Thetford Town.

The Poachers began with a 2-0 victory at AFC Kempston Rovers, but were defeated 5-3 at Peterborough Northern Star in midweek.

Today’s contest will be the first competitive match of the season at the DWB Stadium, and kicks off at 3pm.
