DORSET’S non-league clubs have discovered their opponents in the FA Cup, FA Trophy and FA Vase with the early round draws now made.

The main money-maker each year for clubs lower down the pyramid is the FA Cup.

The extra preliminary round will take place on Saturday, August 3, with winners pocketing £1,125, while losing clubs take home £375.

Bournemouth Poppies host Shaftesbury in an all-Dorset battle, while Hamworthy Recreation go to Portland United.

Christchurch make the tricky trip to Thatcham Town, while Brockenhurst go to Bemerton Heath Harlequins and Bashley are away at Paulton Rovers.

The draw for the preliminary round has also been made, to be played Saturday, August 17. Winners in this round will receive £1,444, while losers still pocket £481.

Should Poppies beat Shaftesbury, they will again be at home, against either Melksham Town or Welton Rovers.

Brockenhurst will hope to host either Laverstock & Ford or Cowes Sports, while Christchurch’s reward should they make it through would be a home tie against Andover New Street or Hythe & Dibden.

Portland or Hamworthy Rec will host the winners of Paulton and Bashley.

There is more money on offer for clubs who can make it through the first round of qualifying for the FA Trophy, with £1,500 going to the winners and £400 for beaten clubs.

Shaftesbury will host North Leigh, while Bashley will take on Mousehole at the newly-named Veho Community Stadium on Saturday, September 7.

A wide range of Dorset clubs will be competing in the first qualifying round of the FA Vase, on Saturday, August 24, competing for a £550 winners prize. Losing clubs take home £160.

Clubs also know their potential second qualifying round opponents, with £725 available for winners and £225 for losers, on Saturday, September 21.

Poppies have again been given a home draw, against Cowes Sports, with the winners then going to Fareham Town.

Returning Hamworthy United will host Warminster Town for the right to travel to Fleet Town, while Ringwood Town are at home against Petersfield Town, with the winners then welcoming Wincanton Town.

Many Dorset clubs will be on the road, including newly-promoted Sturminster Newton United, who go to Folland Sports. The winners will then be at home against Sidlesham-based Infinity.

Brockenhurst are at Hythe & Dibden, with the winners set for a trip to Bridport, while Fawley host Christchurch, knowing a home tie against AFC Stoneham awaits.

Lymington Town are away at Andover New Street, with the winners then going to either Baffins Milton Rovers or AFC Portchester and Verwood Town will be away to Totton & Eling. Winners of that tie will go to the island to face Newport.

New Milton Town go to Millbrook and could then host Alton.

The FA Youth Cup draw has also taken place.

Competing in the preliminary round in the week commencing September 2 will be Poole Town, away at Millbrook, as well as Wimborne Town, who host AFC Portchester. Magpies made it all the way to the second round proper last season, before losing to Swindon Town.

Elsewhere, Poppies host Winchester City, Christchurch go to Moneyfields, Brockenhurst head to Hampshire to take on Sholing and Hamworthy United travel to Swindon Supermarine.
