Horsham’s reward for defeating Tower Hamlets on Saturday is another way tie in the Emirates FA Cup, having been paired with the Metropolitan Police in today’s draw for the 1st qualifying round. The Blues currently play in the Southern League Premier Division, the same level as the Hornets, and currently occupy 14th spot after picking up two wins and a draw from their five games. The two sides were regular league opponents through the late 1990s/early 2000s, having first met in a friendly way back in 1931, but this will be the first time the clubs have met in the FA Cup.
The match will take place at the Met’s Imber Court ground in East Molesey on Saturday 7th September.
