East Thurrock face Dover again
1:05pm Tuesday 3rd December 2013 in Sport
EAST Thurrock will continue to fly the flag for Essex in the FA Trophy in a replay at Dover Athletic tonight.
The winner of the clash at Crabble will host the winner of another replay between Leamington and Northwich in the second round on December 14.
Leamington and Northwich drew 0-0 on Saturday at Leamington’s New Windmill Ground.
Leamington are currently 16th place in the Skrill North, with just one win on their travels from seven league matches, while Northwich are 12th in Evo-Stik Division One North.
Prize money of £6,000 is on offer to the winners of the second round match.
Essex side Braintree are also still in the FA Trophy and will host fellow Skrill Premier side Lincoln City in the next round.
But Rocks – who drew 1-1 with Skrill South side Dover on Saturday – are the only Ryman League side left in it after Hendon were knocked out by Whitstable Town.
