Eastbourne Borough will play Conference Premier outfit Dover Athletic in the next round of the FA Cup.

The fourth qualifying round will be played at Priory Lane on Saturday, October 25 with the victors going on to the first round proper.

Borough’s banked £7,500 in prize money for their victory in Kingstonian and a win against Dover would see them pocket a further £12,500.

Boss Tommy Widdrington said, “The lads have done fantastically well to get this far and we will be doing all we can to keep this Cup run going.

“I was happy to see our name out the hat first. No doubt it will be a tough match for us but we are at home and hopefully we will have a good crowd to cheer us on.

“The last two rounds we have been the favourites but now we are the underdogs -

“ We will have nothing to lose.”
