Harpenden Town’s first adventure in the FA Cup for 11 years will start away from Rothamsted Park.

They will travel to Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division side Cockfosters in the extra-preliminary round on August 6.

London Colney are also on their travels to a fellow SSML side when they make the short trip to Leverstock Green.

And should they get through, then both sides will again need to consult their A to Z’s for the preliminary round.

Harpenden would go to Chalfont St Peter while the Blueboys would face Tring Athletic or Desborough Town.
