Following this afternoon’s FA Trophy draw, Whitehawk’s opponents for the Third Qualifying Round have been confirmed.
And it’s an easterly trip to Isthmian Premier Division side Folkestone Invicta, with the match scheduled for Saturday, September 8.
This will mean that our home fixture with VCD Athletic, fixed for the same date, will be moved to a corresponding day that is to be confirmed in due course.
‘Invicta’ play at Cheriton Road, and have made a solid start to the campaign with three wins from their opening seven league matches.
Victory over North Greenford United and Chichester City sets up an FA Cup tie with Dulwich Hamlet on October 1, but the Hawks will be hoping to cause an upset as they look to progress to the First Round Proper of the FA’s other domestic competition.
