FA Cup & FA Trophy Draws
The draws have been made for the early rounds of this year’s FA Cup and FA Trophy competitions. All of Hythe’s opponents and potential opponents started last season in the Ryman South or North Divisions, and with the exception of Ryman South Play-Off Winners, Maidstone United, remain at the same level of the football pyramid as ourselves.
In the FA Cup Preliminary Round we face an away fixture at fellow Ryman South side, Three Bridges, the tie will be played on Saturday 31st August, with the winner receiving prize money of £1,925. The winner of that match will then face a potentially lucrative home tie against Maidstone United, now of the Ryman Premier Division, with the winner receiving £3,000 in prize money.
