They may have the FA Cup firmly on their mind at the moment but Potters Bar Town will start their FA Trophy campaign with an away trip to Essex.

Heybridge Swifts will provide the opposition in October 26 in what promises to be a tough test for Lee O'Leary's men.

Although the Essex club are one level lower than the Scholars, they currently sit fifth in Isthmian League Division One North with four wins and three draws from their eight league games.

They reached this stage with a 2-0 win at Staines Town on Saturday, Jack Adlington-Pile getting both goals in the second half.

The two sides last met in April 2018 when they drew 0-0 at Scraley Road.

That was during the Scholars' promotion-winning season and the home game brought a 3-2 win for Town with now manager O'Leary among the scorers.

The winners of this match will receive £2,450 while the losers get £800.
