WEYMOUTH have been handed a testing trip to Havant & Waterlooville in the FA Cup fourth qualifying round.

The sides played each other last week, with Havant coming out on top 2-0 after Weymouth missed a litany of chances.

Weymouth reached the final qualifying stage after a commanding 3-0 win over Welling on Saturday.

Weymouth are bidding to reach the FA Cup main draw for the first time since 2007 when the Terras were beaten 1-0 by Cambridge United in the second round.

The Terras have lost at the fourth qualifying round stage for the past two seasons, losing 3-2 to Oxford City and then dramatically to arch-rivals Yeovil on penalties after a classic replay.

Should Weymouth reach the first round, the Terras would win £9,375 in prize money but only £3,125 for losing.

Ties are scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 15 with draws going to a replay.

If ties remain level after 180 minutes, extra-time and penalties are required.
