Royston Town will be back at Garden Walk for the first round of the FA Trophy – with familiar faces providing the opposition.
The Crows will host Southern League Premier Division Central rivals Tamworth on a date yet to be specified, the original one scheduled for November 14.
The two sides seemed set to battle out the destination of the title last season before the league was declared null and void.
They have already met in the league this year, drawing 1-1 at The Lamb Ground on October 17.
Brandon Adams got the goal that day and he scored twice on Saturday as Royston saw off the challenge of Hythe Town with a 2-0 win at home, taking his tally for the year up to nine in all competitions.
