Potters Bar Town will begin what they hope to be a long and fruitful journey in this year’s FA Cup in Essex after the draw for the first qualifying round was made.

They will go to either Takeley or White Ensign on September 7, with the two sides set to replay after a 3-3 draw on Saturday.

The Scholars went out at this stage last season losing away to Hanwell Town but this is the first year they have entered the competition at this point.

Whoever wins this round will pocket £4,500 while the losers will still claim £1,500.

Elsewhere Wingate & Finchley, conquerors of Welwyn Garden City in the preliminary round, will have another home tie, this time against SSML Premier Division side London Colney.

The Blue Boys' neighbours, Colney Heath, are at home for the first time in this year's competition but have been paired with Southern League Corby Town.

Hitchin Town go to Ely or Wisbech while Royston face Rothwell at home.
