Eastbourne Borough will welcome Dulwich Hamlet in the third qualifying round of the Emirates FA Cup.

Dulwich also compete in the National League South, the sixth tier of English football, and are temporarily tenants of Tooting & Mitcham United at their Imperial Fields ground, as a result of a dispute with the owners of Champion Hill, the club’s home since 1912.

Borough advanced last Saturday in Suffolk thanks to a 59th minute goal from Yemi Odubade at Brantham Athletic Football Club. Dulwich progressed courtesy of a 3-1 home win against Tonbridge.

Jamie Howell’s men now join Worthing FC, Whitehawk and Horsham who all continue to fly the Sussex flag, along with Bognor Regis Town and Lewes, who both face a replay.

Horsham will entertain Poole Town and Hastings United, who pulled off an improbable 4-3 victory at Leiston on Saturday despite finishing with only eight players, are rewarded with a visit to either Hitchin Town or Didcot.

Whitehawk have a daunting trip to big-spending Billericay. If they win their respective replays, Bognor go to Haringey Borough and Lewes face a long trip to Bath City.

Ties to be played on Saturday 6th October.
