FA Cup Draw: AFC host league rivals
Fellow Bostik League Division One North side Aveley will be AFC Sudbury’s visitors in the Preliminary Round of this season’s Emirates FA Cup.
When the two teams last met in March 2016, Sudbury ran out 1-0 winners thanks to a 44th-minute goal from Joe Maybanks.
The tie at The Wardale Williams Stadium will be played on Saturday, August 19.
In the Preliminary Round, Hadleigh United host Sporting Bengal United and Long Melford travel to Hackney Wick.
