ROYSTON Town are going to Wembley, after the FA Cup draw was made this week.

Wembley Stadium awaits the eventual finalists - however, The Crows start their campaign with an extra preliminary round trip to Wembley of the Combined Counties League on Saturday, August 16.

The winner s will then meet AFC Hayes of the British Gas Business Football League Division One.

Paul Attfield's side have also drawn either Southend Manor of the Essex Senior League or South Midlands League rivals Harpenden in the second qualifying round of the FA Vase.

Attfield said: "As far as the FA Cup goes it would certainly be nice to start and end at Wembley.

"However, we'll be looking to hopefully get through a few of the early rounds and draw a big non-league club, which would be great for the club.

"The FA Vase is the important one for us though and I'd like to do well in it.

"I think we'll probably end up playing Southend Manor, which will be a tough place to go. The draw could have been kinder, but in one-off games anything can happen."

The Crows start their pre season training tonight (Thursday) at Meridian School, where Attfield will be running the rule over his squad and a number of trialists.

He said: "I'm expecting a fair few to be there and it's a chance to have a look at some potential new players. We've got a big pre season schedule, and I'm looking forward to getting going again.
