FA Cup draw: Ebbsfleet to host rivals Dartford
EBBSFLEET United have landed a dream home draw in the fourth qualifying round of the FA Cup against neighbours Dartford.
The winners of the tie will go into the hat for the first round proper draw, the stage of the competition where sides from League One and League Two enter.
Fleet booked their place in the final qualifying stage on Saturday with a 2-0 home success over Eastbourne Borough.
As a Conference Premier club, this is the earliest stage at which Dartford enter the contest.
The October 26 clash at Stonebridge Road is sure to attract a huge crowd, with 2,242 coming through the turnstiles the last time the two rivals met at the same venue on New Year’s Day.
Meanwhile, Conference high-flyers Welling United have been handed an away trip to Western Premier League outfit Brislington, who are based in Bristol.
