FA Cup and Vase draws revealed

Boston Town learn their opponents for the two national knockout competitions

The Poachers will travel to local rivals Deeping Rangers in the Extra Preliminary Round of the Emirates FA Cup.

The tie will take place on Saturday 15 August, with the winners then at home to Dereham Town on Saturday 29 August in the Preliminary Round.

In the FA Vase, Boston Town are at home to Great Yarmouth Town in the 1st Qualifying Round on Saturday 5 September.

If they win that, they will face Deeping again - this time at home in the 2nd Qualifying Round on Saturday 3 October.

The Poachers have played both Great Yarmouth and Dereham in recent years.

They beat Yarmouth 3-2 at home in the FA Cup two seasons ago but were knocked out of the FA Vase by them last season 1-0 on their own ground. Dereham also beat Boston Town 3-1 at the DWB Stadium in the FA Cup in 2013-14.

Yarmouth compete in the Eastern Counties League Division One - a level below Boston Town - while Dereham are in the Isthmian League Division One North, which is a step above the Poachers in the non-league structure.

There's £1,500 prize money for the winners of the Emirates FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round tie and £600 for getting through the FA Vase 1st Qualifying Round.
