TAUNTON Town have been drawn away to Tonbridge Angels at the fourth round qualifying stage of this season's Emirates FA Cup.

Victory in that match, which is scheduled to be played on Saturday, October 24, will take the Peacocks into the first round proper of the competition for the first time since the 2016/17 campaign.

Tonbridge play in National League South, one level above Taunton, who are in Southern League Premier South.

The Kent-based side gained promotion back to the National League, after a five-year absence, by winning the 'Super Play-Off' against Southern League play-off winners Metropolitan Police in 2019.

Tonbridge are currently 10th in the National League South standings, with one win and one defeat from their opening two games.

Taunton have beaten Wantage Town, Tiverton Town and Truro City to reach this stage, as part of their unbeaten start to the 2020/21 season.

The winners of October 24's match will pick up £9,375 in prize money, and the losing team get £3,125.

With National League South sides classed as 'elite', current COVID-19 regulations mean that no fans will be able to attend the match.
