It’s Eastbourne in the FA Cup

Fleet will play host to Eastbourne Borough in the FA Cup third qualifying round after the south-coast club came through their replay against Farnborough, winning 2-0 at Paddy Power Park.

The two sides have met three times previously in cup competitions, a 0-0 draw and 1-0 reply win for the Fleet in the 2004-05 FA Trophy and 3-1 win at Priory Lane for the Fleet in a Setanta Shield match in 2008.

The FA Cup tie takes place at Stonebridge Road on Saturday, October 12, kick-off 3.00pm. Entry is free to season-ticket holders and under 12s. Standard admission for adults and concessions is as league prices (£10/£5).

In the event of a replay, it will take place at Eastbourne Borough on Tuesday, 15 October, kick-off 7.45pm. Admission there is £12 adults, £8 concessions and £1 for under 16s.
