St Albans City’s first foray into this year’s FA Trophy will see them head to the south coast in the third qualifying round.

Saints, who were exempt until this stage, travel to fellow Vanarama National League South side Whitehawk.

The game will be played on Saturday, November 26.

City have already beaten the Hawks once this season, two goals from Louie Theophanous and one from Sam Merson giving them a 3-1 success at Clarence Park in August.

They will be hoping for better luck than last season which saw their campaign end at the first hurdle with a 4-0 defeat at Lowestoft Town, a game which also saw then managers Jimmy Gray and Graham Golds resign.
