PORTLAND United and Bridport must negotiate their way past tricky FA Cup opponents in the competition's preliminary rounds.

Callum Brooks' Portland face a home extra preliminary round tie with Toolstation Western League Premier Division side Clevedon Town.

Both sides operate at the ninth tier of English football.

Bridport have been given a more severe draw away to Southern League Division One South outfit Willand Rovers, who won the Western League Premier Division in 2018/19.

Rovers went on to claim 14th in the Southern League Division One South before the coronavirus pandemic.

Should Portland beat Clevedon, the Blues could set up a Dorset derby at Sherborne Town, if the Zebras defeat Street.

Jamie Manley's Bees would travel to either Shepton Mallet or Torrington if they can beat Willand.

Ties for the FA Vase were also determined, with Portland hosting Hamble Club in the first qualifying round on Saturday, September 19 (3pm).

If victorious, the islanders would then visit Amesbury Town or Lymington Town at the next stage.

Bridport host AFC St Austell and could go on to entertain Ilfracombe Town or Portishead Town in the second qualifying round, due for Saturday, October 10 (3pm).

FA Cup extra preliminary round ties are scheduled for Tuesday, September 1 (7.45pm) with preliminary round contests fulfilled on Saturday, September 12 (3pm).

There will be no replays, with drawn games decided by a penalty shootout.

Sums of £375 and £481 go to the losers in the respective rounds.

FA Vase first and second qualifying round winners earn £550 and £725 respectively, with losing teams in turn pocketing £160 and £225.
