HASTINGS United have been handed a home draw in the next round of the FA Cup.

The U’s will take on either Ryman Premier rivals Whitehawk or Hitchen Town in the third qualifying round at The Pilot Field on Saturday October 6.

The Hawks were held to a 1-1 draw at home to their Evo-Stik Southern Premier opponents at the weekend and are due to meet again tonight (Monday).

Hastings, meanwhile, clinched a superb 3-2 win away to higher grade Staines Town on Saturday thanks to a double strike from Bradley Goldberg and Dee Okojie’s first goal for the club.

The last time Hastings progressed to this stage of the competition was in 2004.
