The Fleet will visit East Thurrock United in the Emirates FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Round following our No.7 ball being the last out of the bag. The game will be played on Saturday, 14th October. East Thurrock defeated Harlow Town 2-1 away from home in midweek in a replay after a 2-2 at the Rocks’ Rookery Ground on Saturday.
East Thurrock, who beat Biggleswade Town in the Second Qualifying Round, are going well in the National League South, lying fourth and having lost just one league game this season. We previously played an FA Trophy tie against them in 2005 and, of course, faced them twice in the league last season.
