St Albans City will start this season’s FA Cup campaign with a trip to Norfolk following the draw for the second qualifying round.

Saints will face Dereham Town of the Ryman League Division One North on Saturday, September 17.

The Magpies reached this stage with a 2-1 win over Holbeach United in the previous round, while St Albans have been exempt until now.

They will hope to continue their good start to their Vanarama National League South season which has seen them in the upper reaches of the table.

City made the first round proper last year, losing to Grimsby Town, now of League Two.

The winners in the second qualifying round will receive £4,500 from the FA prize fund.
