AFC Sudbury and Soham Town Rangers discovered their opponents for the second qualifying round of the Emirates FA Cup this afternoon.

The Yellows have been handed a tough test with a trip to higher league Ebbsfleet United, who lost out on penalties in the National League South play-off final last season.

Jamie Godbold’s men eased through the first qualifying round after beating local rivals Halstead Town 6-0 at the weekend.

Soham will first need to get through a first qualifying round replay against Rushall Olympic tomorrow, with the reward a home clash with higher league Kettering Town.

Rangers were denied an outright place in today’s draw after they let a 2-0 lead slip to draw 2-2 at Rushall on Saturday.

If the Greens get past Rushall in the replay then recently returning striker Dubi Ogbonna will go up against his former club later this month.

The 24-year-old, who is back for a third spell at Julius Martin Lane, played for Kettering before joining St Neots Town during the summer.

The second qualifying round ties are scheduled for Saturday, September 17 (3pm), with £4,500 going to the winners.
