The Sports face a tricky trip to another National League South side in the Third Qualifying Round of the Emirates FA Cup


Eastbourne Borough and Dulwich Hamlet have history in the Emirates FA Cup, particularly at this stage of the competition.

And that rivalry will be renewed on October 5 after today's Third Qualifying Round draw, live on Talksport 2.

Last season saw the Sports go 4-0 up at Priory Lane against Hamlet, only for the visitors to turn the game around and almost force a replay - Borough holding on to win 4-3.

And Gavin Rose's side will look to avenge that defeat at progress to the Fourth Qualifying Round - with Hamlet having already beaten Borough this season.

Danny Mills scored twice with Reise Allassani adding a third late on as Hamlet eased to a 3-0 win to end Borough's unbeaten home start back in August.

But this is the FA Cup, and Lee Bradbury will be hoping to draw inspiration from big game performances we have seen in recent weeks to guide his side to the Fourth Qualifying Round himself.

The tie will take place on Saturday, 5 October at 15:00 at Dulwich's Champion Hill home. Travel arrangements will be announced in due course.
