Shaun Saunders’ side will head to Isthmian Premier Division Horsham’s Camping World Community Stadium on Tuesday, November 1 for the Third Round of the Velocity Trophy.
This clash brings back welcome memories for five within the current Hawks setup; Will Miles, Rob O’Toole, Charlie Harris, Joe Shelley and new addition Alex Malins all having enjoyed a portion of their career with The Hornets.
Whitehawk reached this stage of the competition following their impressive 4-0 victory over Ashford United in early October, and will be wary of the threat Horsham pose with former Hawk Lucas Rodrigues eager to make an impression.
Dominic di Paola’s cohort have made a strong start to the campaign after last year’s 11th place finish; sitting in sixth whilst scoring 4+ goals in three of their home matches already this season.
Kick-off is scheduled for 7.45 as Saunders looks to keep the cup flame alive after lone FA Cup and FA Trophy defeats, the only two games the Hawks have lost all campaign.
