The Road to Wembley Becomes Clearer

GRIMSBY have drawn Bath City in the Third Round of the FA Trophy - a side they have never beaten before. City infamously knocked the Mariners out of the FA Cup two seasons ago when Grimsby were a league side, a feat they will be looking to emulate in the flagship tournament for non-league football.

With the prize at stake being a place at Wembley Town will be pleased to avoid the teams above them in the league. However they will have to overcome one of their bogey sides to progress. They will also pick up £8K in prize money if they beat the Grecians.

The draw has guaranteed that at least two sides outside the Conference will reach the last 8. It has also potentially paired together Kidderminster and Luton, two of the favourites.

Kidderminster Harriers v Hinckley United or Luton Town
Northwich Victoria v East Thurrock United or Hampton & Richmond Borough
Cambridge United v Guiseley
Dartford v Wealdstone
Bath City v Grimsby Town
York City v Ebbsfleet United
Gateshead or Braintree Town v Alfreton Town
Worksop Town or Newport County v Lincoln City or Carshalton Athletic
