King’s Lynn Town will be on their travels in the FA Cup second qualifying round whilst Lowestoft Town and Dereham Town both landed home ties.

The Linnets, who secured their place in the next round thanks to a 4-1 win over Coleshill, will be heading to Nuneaton Town on Saturday, September 16.

Nuneaton operate a level above Ian Culverhouse’s side in the National League North where they are currently in 16th place, winning just two of their eight league games so far this season.

Lowestoft must wait to find out the result of a replay between Thurrock and Harlow Town on Tuesday night to find out the identity of their opponents. The pair fought out a 1-1 draw at Ship Lane on Saturday. Both sides are familiar to the Trawlerboys as they operate in the Bostik League Premier alongside the Blues but Lowestoft will be looking to make full use of home advantage.

Dereham will be favourites to advance in their tie at home to Boston Town, who play in the United Counties League Premier Division - a step below the Magpies.

Dereham have enjoyed a dream start to life under new manager Neal Simmons, who took over in the summer from Matt Henman, winning all four of their league games in Bostik Division One North. They also advanced to the second qualifying round of the FA Cup, beating both Corby and Yaxley on the way, and will fancy their chances against Boston, who have played just twice so far in the league this season.

Boston have however shown they are capable of causing an upset, beating Hednesford Town of the Evo-Stik Premier Division, 2-1 in the first qualifying round on Saturday.

Winners of second qualifying round ties will pocket £4,500 to add to the £3,000 claimed by first qualifying round winners.
