Royston Town will have another home FA Cup tie in the first qualifying round – if they can see off Heybridge Swifts at Garden Walk on Saturday.

The Crows were paired with either Bedford Town or AFC Dunstable after today’s draw.

Both teams are league rivals of Royston in the Southern League Division One Central.

First round qualifying matches will be played on September 3, with the winner receiving £3,000 from the FA Cup prize fund.

The draw for the first round qualifying was made prior to the preliminary round in order to help clubs in their scheduling plans ahead of what could be a busy September for many.
