Chasetown FC have been handed a home clash to Grantham Town in the FA Trophy. The first round qualifying clash will be played on October 22, with the Scholars hoping home advantage will be enough to earn them the £2,200 prize money. Meanwhile, the FA Cup draw will see Charlie Blakemore’s men entertain one of either Tividale, Alvechurch, Bustleholme or Eccleshall. The first round qualifying will take place on September 17, with £3,000 prize money for the winners.
