Soham Town Rangers will face either Lincolnshire or Norfolk-based opponents in the preliminary round of the FA Cup.

Dave Theobald and Robbie Nightingale’s men are set to take on the winner of the tie between Lincs side Harrowby United, or Norfolk side Thetford Town at home on Saturday August 20.

The Greens then travel up to Staffordshire on Saturday October 8 for a tricky tie with Evo-Stick Division One South mid-tablers Newcastle Town in the preliminary round of the FA Trophy.

Soham have met with Newcastle in previous seasons, beating them 1-0 in 2013.

If they make it through the preliminary round, they then face another lengthy trip – this time to Stoke-on-Trent - to take on Evo-Stik Division One South side, Kidsgrove Athletic, on Saturday October 29.

Soham will look to improve on their previous performance in the competition when they were knocked out in the first round by Carlton Town.
