Trip down south awaits in FA Cup First Qualifying Round

The winner of the Emirates FA Cup Preliminary Round replay between the Bulls and Heanor Town will face Southern League opposition in the next stage.

BetVictor Southern League Central Division side Barwell will host the victors of next Tuesday night's replay in the First Qualifying Round on Saturday 7 September.

The Bulls will be hoping to reach the third stage of the famous cup competition for the fourth season running, having reached the Second Qualifying Round for three years on the trot including two appearances in the Third.

The side that was managed by Rudy Funk this time last season too had to face Southern League opponents on their FA Cup journey, only just losing out to high-flying hosts Kettering Town 2-1 in the Second Qualifying Round.

The winners of the tie between AFC and Heanor will earn another £2,890 from the prize pot, with a handy £4,500 awaiting the winner of the next round.
