The draw for the third qualifying round of the FA Cup has been made

Wealdstone manager Bobby Wilkinson could face his former club Hungerford Town in the FA Cup after the draw for the third qualifying round on Monday.

Stones progressed to this stage of the competition after a 2-0 win at home to Great Wakering Rovers on Saturday.

The reward for the Grosvenor Vale outfit is a trip to either Hungerford or Wantage Town, who will meet in a replay on Tuesday night.

Haringey Borough, meanwhile, will entertain either Bognor Regis Town or Sudbury in the third qualifying round.

Hendon were due in FA Cup action on Saturday, but saw their scheduled clash with Phoenix Sports postponed owing to an investigation into the latter fielding an ineligible player in a previous round.

The Greens are still unsure about who they will face in the second qualifying round, but if they do progress, they will visit either Chippenham Town or Swindon Supermarine.

Ties in the third qualifying are scheduled to be played over the weekend of October 6, with winners pocketing £15,000 in prize money.

FA Cup third qualifying round draw, selected ties: HARINGEY BOROUGH v Bognor Regis Town or Sudbury; Hungerford Town or Wantage Town v WEALDSTONE; Chippenham Town or Swindon Supermarine v HENDON or Phoenix Sports or Lancing.
