THE FINAL qualifying round of the FA Cup has paired Bognor with Wealdstone and Eastbourne Borough with Dover.

The Rocks will be away to Wealdstone - who are near the bottom of National League South - while Eastbourne will be at home in their game, against a side flying high in the National League top division.

Bognor reached this stage with a superb come-from-behind 4-2 win over Oxford City of National League South at Nyewood Lane, while Eastbourne Borough scraped through to the fourth qualifying round with a nervy 3-2 home win over Hartley Wintney.

Meanwhile Whitehawk will host Poole Town in the fourth qualifying round if they win at Gosport in a replay on Tuesday night.

The ties are due to take place on Saturday, October 24, and this is the last round before clubs in League One and League Two join in for the first round proper.

Sides who won in the third qualifying round earned £7,500 each - and the prize pot goes up to £12,500 in the fourth qualifying round.
