Guernsey FC face Crawley Down in FA Cup preliminary round

Guernsey FC have been drawn away to Crawley Down Gatwick in the preliminary round of the FA Cup.

The winner of the tie on 31 August will face Ramsgate or Hastings United, who reached the third round last year, in the qualifying round.

The club's participation in the cup had been in doubt after the FA imposed certain conditions on them.

The club launched an appeal for money to help with the extra costs of entering the competition.

The Green Lions, who are also in the FA Trophy, have been handed another away fixture, against Barkingside on 5 October.

Victory would ensure a home tie in the first qualifying round against Billericay Town.
