Horndean are hoping for a bumper crowd as they host Wessex League division one Brockenhurst in an extra-preliminary round FA Cup tie at Five Heads Park (3pm).

The club have been out canvassing the local area all week advertising free entry for the clash.

And Dave Carter is hoping it will bring results.

‘The FA Cup is always exciting and it will be good to get a few more people in,’ said the Deans boss.

‘Brockenhurst were only relegated from the premier division a couple of years ago and we know they are an established side. They had a good league cup run last season, so we know it will be tough.

‘We have got a few more players coming back to strengthen our cause and winning at Verwood in midweek gave us a boost.’

Louis Castles and Nathan Paxton return from holiday and 18-year-old goalkeeper Derek Harding continues in place of Simon Howard.

‘Young Derek has stepped up from the youth team and done well for us,’ said Carter.

HORNDEAN: Harding, Stone, Perkins, Hayes, Chapman, Ellington, De Sport, Fennemore, Spurway, Warren, Austin, Castles, Paxton, Fenelon, Woodward, Bell

n Moneyfields head into the unknown as they make the long trip to Bristol to take on Western League premier division side Winterbourne United.

It is the home side’s first-ever FA Cup tie and Moneyfields boss Miles Rutherford is hoping his men will be party poopers.

‘Playing sides you know nothing about is all part of the magic of the FA Cup,’ he said.

‘I like to think we can go there and get a result.

‘The incentive is a home tie in the next two rounds.

‘I have made a number of decent signings during the summer that I believe makes us stronger.’

Jason Parrish, Adrian Brockway, Dan Sackman and Alex Miroy all arrived at Dover Road.

Rutherford is also boosted by the return of Jack Lee and Jake Slater, but Luke Middleton and Warren Hunt are unavailable.

MONEYFIELDS: Hook, Scott, Evans, Wain S, Rackley, Sackman, Milroy, Lacey, Birmingham M, Hore, Hutchings, Gauntlett, Gregory, Lee, Slater, Brockway, Boyle, Parrish
