Holbeach United have been handed an away game in the Buildbase FA Vase first round proper on October 22.

The Tigers had exemption for the qualifying rounds so they came into this afternoon’s draw at Wembley.

They will face a trip to Coventry Copsewood who have already lost six out of eight games in the Midland League Division One.

At the weekend, though, they made history by reaching the first round proper with a 2-1 home win over Atherstone Town.

The Tigers are looking to extend their unbeaten start as they head to Harrowby United on Tuesday night in the ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League Premier Division.

Holbeach led for an hour but had to settle for a 1-1 draw at second-placed Newport Pagnell Town on Saturday.
