Horsham and landlords YM drawn together in FA Cup

The FA Cup draw on Friday tossed up a potentially cracking tie between Horsham FC and landlords Horsham YMCA.

First YM must beat Raynes Park Vale in the extra preliminary round (Saturday August 11) to set up a mouth-watering contest that would be the very definition of a local derby at Gorings Mead.

Horsham receive a bye straight into the preliminary round - five before the first round proper - and should the two Horsham clubs meet on Saturday August 25 a big turnout would be guaranteed.

The draw for the FA Trophy also took place last Friday. Horsham must travel to Sittingbourne, and should they win that they will then play Hitchin in the first qualifying round.
