Hawks manager Lee Bradbury is delighted to get another FA Trophy home draw after they were tied with Welling United in the second round.

For the second-successive round the Hawks find themselves entertaining Vanarama National League visitors.

The Westleigh Park side defeated Forest Green Rovers 2-0 on Saturday to progress.

‘I am pleased to get another home draw, especially as it is against a team from the higher level,’ said Bradbury.

‘That is the key to it because our home record has been good this season.

‘Welling, like us, will be disappointed with their season so far.

‘After beating Forest Green Rovers, we can approach the tie with confidence and with nothing to fear.’

Bognor’s reward for seeing off Maidstone 1-0 at the weekend is home advantage against either Altrincham or Leamington.

In the FA Vase, Moneyfields will face Western League Bristol Manor Farm at Dover Road if they beat Brimscombe & Thrupp in tomorrow night’s replay.
