FA Cup giantkillers Baldock Town have new prey in their sights after the draw for the second qualifying round was made.

Baldock had never previously been beyond the preliminary round of the famous old competition but a thrilling 4-3 win over Thame United made sure they were in the hat.

And they will be at home again against another Evostik Southern League Division One East side in the shape of Aylesbury United, who beat Tilbury 1-0 in the previous round.

The match will take place on Saturday, September 16.

Royston Town were also winners in the first qualifying round, beating Dunstable Town 2-0, and their prize is a trip to Braintree Town of the Vanarama National League South.

Biggleswade Town and Hitchin Town were both held to draws on Saturday against North Leigh and Haringey Borough respectively.

And both will also face National South opposition should they win through.

Biggleswade would be at home to East Thurrock United while Hitchin would travel to Welling.
