Slough Town handed home draw with Havant & Waterlooville in FA Trophy

Slough Town have been drawn at home against league rivals Havant & Waterlooville in the second round of the FA Trophy.

Clubs from the National League North and South enter the competition at this stage with ties to take place over the weekend of Saturday, November 27.

Slough have confirmed the game will take place at Arbour Park on Saturday, November 27 with a 3pm kick-off.

Winning clubs will receive £3,750 from the FA’s prize fund alongside their place in the third-round draw.

Havant have made a positive start to the season in the National League South and sit just a point outside the play-offs having picked up six wins from their opening 12 matches.

However, the Rebels are just a couple of points behind them in the standings and claimed a crucial 2-1 away win at Havant just a few weeks ago to kick-start their recent uptick in form.

Reacting to the draw on Twitter, Rebels’ joint boss Jon Underwood said: “Dartford last year and now Havant!

“Not the draw we wanted but it’s always eventful when we play them, and it’ll be another great test for us.”

The Rebels will also be looking to end a run that’s seen them knocked out of the Trophy by teams at their level for the past six seasons.

Larkhall Athletic’s reward for their penalty shoot-out victory over Marlow on Saturday is a trip to Wimborne Town of the Southern League Premier South division.
