Dean Greygoose's side will host Greenwich Borough at Recreation Way in the first round qualifying, having played their four previous Trophy ties on the road.

Like Mildenhall, Greenwich ply their trade at Step 4 and are currently 18th in the Bostik League South East Division.

Elsewhere, Needham Market will enter the tournament with a trip to Kings Langley, while Soham Town Rangers will be at home to Hednesford Town if they can overcome AFC Mansfield in Tuesday night's replay.

Those two sides met at Julius Martin Lane on Saturday and played out a 0-0 draw.

The ties will take place on Saturday, October 27, with the winners picking up £3,250 in prize.

* Meanwhile, after beating one Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division team on Saturday, Stowmarket Town have been drawn against another in the second round of the FA Vase.

The Old Gold and Blacks – 5-0 winners over Harpenden Town last time out – will welcome Baldock Town to Greens Meadow on Saturday, November 3.
