Welwyn Garden City have been handed a home draw in both the FA Vase and the FA Cup after the early rounds of the national competitions were made.

The Citizens host Brackley Town Saints in the FA Vase first round qualifying while it is Combined Counties Premier Division North Greenford United who head to Herns Lane in the FA Cup extra preliminary round.

Victory, however, would send WGC away in the respective next rounds.

They would face Abingdon United or Highmoor Ibis in the Vase while Ardley United or Baldock Town would provide the opposition in the Fa Cup.

Codicote have been given a bye in the first qualifying round of the FA Vase and will play away to either Royal Wootton Bassett Town or Fairford Town in the second qualifying.

Hatifeld Town will also be heading out on a road trip with AFC Hayes the destination in the FA Vase.

And there will be no home comforts should they win with a trip to either Buckingham Athletic or Bedford waiting in the second qualifying round.

Potters Bar Town are exempt until the preliminary round of the FA Cup where they will be at home to either Sawbridgeworth Town or West Essex.

They also start in the preliminary round of the FA Trophy where they are again at home, this time to new Bostick Division One north rivals Tilbury.
