AFC Sudbury will travel to Skrill Conference South outfit Tonbridge Angels in the third qualifying round of the FA Trophy.

The Yellows — who reached the stage by overcoming Hastings United 1-0 on Saturday thanks to James Baker’s second-half header — will play their tie on Saturday, November 16.

Kent side Tonbridge Angels, who play two leagues up the football pyramid from Sudbury, are currently third-from-bottom in their league.

David Batch’s side are currently 8th in Ryman League Division One North, two points off the play-offs having won three of their last four, but with games in hand on those above them due to their cup run. The winners will earn £4,000 in prize money and get the opportunity to face Skrill Conference Premier sides such as Cambridge United and Luton Town in the first round proper.
