Hitchin Town’s reward for victory in the FA Trophy on Saturday is another home tie after the draw for the first round was made.

The Canaries will host Northern Premier League Mickleover in the next stage, although a date for the tie is yet to be announced having originally been set for November 14.

The two teams have been fated to play each other this year, with Mickleover travelling to St Albans City in the FA Cup, one round after the Saints had beaten Hitchin.

The Top Field side treated thier fans to a workmanlike performance on Saturday, coming from behind to beat Herne Bay 3-1.

Derby-based Mickleover meanwhile enjoyed a thumping 5-0 win at home to Dereham Town.

The winners of each tie in this round will receive £3,000 while the losers pocket £775.
