Ely City have been given home draws in both the FA Cup and FA Vase.


Ely City will kick off their FA Cup campaign with the visit of Deeping Rangers.

Brady Stone’s men will take on the UCL Premier Division side on Saturday August 6 at the Unwin Ground in the extra preliminary round.

If the Robins can beat the Lincolnshire side, they will then face another home tie, this time against higher-level Wroxham in the preliminary round two weeks later.

Wroxham currently play in Step 4 in the Ryman League Division One North.

The Robins will also be at home for the visit of Kirkley & Pakefield in the first qualifying round of the FA Vase.

Ely will host the Lowestoft and District Division One side on Saturday September 10, and if they progress, will have another home fixture against either Diss Town or Team Bury to look forward to on September 24.

Diss and Bury are no strangers to the Robins, as they tackled both sides in their promotion-clinching Thurlow Nunn Division One campaign last season.
