FA Trophy and Vase draw throw up intriguing ties
FA Trophy and Vase draw throw up intriguing ties

The draws for both the fifth round of the Buildbase FA Vase and the third round of the FA Trophy were made on Monday afternoon.

Taking place live on TalkSPORT2, the draws were made by FA Nation Game Competitions Committee vice chairman Nick Robinson and broadcaster and non-League expert Tony Incenzo.

The draw has thrown up intriguing ties for the three remaining Kent Clubs across the competitions.

Ebbsfleet United have a home tie with ambitious BetVictor Southern Premier Central side Royston Town. Royston are two levels below Ebbsfleet United but have already knocked out three sides at higher levels en route to the last 16.

In the FA Vase, Corinthian’s reward for the extra time knock out of Chatham Town is a home tie against Midland Football league side Sporting Khalsa. Khalsa sit second in their league.

If Deal Town can get through their replay on Saturday against Binfield they will face an unenviable trip to Northern League Division One side Consett AFC.

Ties in both the Trophy and Vase will be played on Saturday 8 February, with no replays at this stage of both competitions.

Winning clubs in the Trophy at this stage will pick up £6000 while losing teams will get £2000 and in the Vase, it’s £2250 for winning clubs and £750 for those who get knocked out.
