In the Emirates FA Cup the Extra Preliminary Round sees the Rams drawn at home to Virginia Water of the Hellenic League. This will take place on Saturday 10th August at Mayfield Stadium. This is the first time we have played them and for Virginia Water will be their first game in the FA Cup. The winner will be away to Herne Bay United in the Preliminary Round.
In the FA Vase the Rams have been drawn away to Sheppey United in the 1st Qualifying Round who we will be familiar with and against whom we have previously locked horns in the FA Cup. Sheppey are one of the favourites for SCEFL this season so will be tough opponents. The winners are away to either Saltdean FC or Lordswood.
Finally for the Rams, in the FA Youth Cup we have been drawn away against Sittingbourne in the Preliminary Round. In the First Qualifying Round it is another away draw against either Phoenix Sports or Tonbridge Angels. These ties will take place in September.
