Town at home in FA Cup

Poachers play Walsham Le Willows in the Extra Preliminary Round

Boston Town have discovered who they will face in this year's FA Cup and FA Vase.

They are at home to Eastern Counties League Premier Division side Walsham Le Willows in the Extra Preliminary Round of the FA Cup on Saturday 16 August, the second Saturday of the new season.

If they win that tie, they will be away to Diss Town or Holbeach Utd in the Preliminary Round. Another victory would then earn them a tough trip to Kings Lynn in the 1st Qualifying Round.

In the FA Vase, Boston Town are away to Eastern Counties League Division One side Great Yarmouth in the 2nd Qualifying Round on Saturday 4 October.

The Poachers have struggled to make much of an impact in the two national competitions in recent years but increased prize money means progressing in the FA Cup in particular can lead to significant financial rewards.

They stand to win £1,500 if they beat Walsham Le Willows and £800 if the knock out Great Yarmouth.
