FA Cup draw: Enfield Town test for Eastbourne Borough

Eastbourne Borough have been drawn to play Enfield Town at Priory Lane in the second preliminary round of the FA Cup on Saturday, September 27.

Enfield are in the Ryman Premier and currently lie in mid-table.

They easily beat lower league Felixstowe on Saturday in the previous round.

The club has recently been embroiled in controversy over manager George Borg, a colourful and well-known figure on the Non League scene, who left the club ten days ago after accusations of racist remarks made to members of another club (Wingate and Finchley).

Borg has been replaced by player-coach Bradley Quinton.

Borough should fancy their chances with a home draw against a club who are a division lower, but their Cup form in recent seasons has been inglorious, including three defeats to Ryman Premier sides.
