The Hawks will have to overcome Skrill North opposition Gloucester City if they are to progress in this year’s FA Cup.

Lee Bradbury’s side have been handed a tough tie away to the Whaddon Road outfit in the second qualifying round of the famous competition.

Also forced to hit the road are Gosport Borough.

They have been drawn against Skrill South rivals Bath City, who currently sit eight points above Alex Pike’s side in the league table.

Borough, however, defeated Bath 3-1 in the Cup last season in a replay, after their first game at Twerton Park finished in a 1-1 draw.

AFC Portchester are rewarded for their 5-0 humbling of Horndean on Saturday with a trip to Southern League division one south & west side Cirencester.

Meanwhile, the winners of Wednesday night’s first qualifying round replay between Bognor and Froome will face Southern League Weymouth away.

Weymouth saw off the challenge of Fareham on Saturday, winning 1-0.

All ties are to be played on Saturday, September 28.
