DORCHESTER Town have been handed a daunting trip to BetVictor Southern Premier South rivals Salisbury in the FA Trophy first qualifying round.

In August, the Magpies visited the Raymond McEnhill Stadium and lost 4-1 to Steve Claridge's men.

Salisbury have been something of a bogey team for Dorchester in recent seasons, with a 10-0 loss in 2016 preceding 3-0 and 4-1 defeats to the Whites last term.

However, Dorchester dazzled in the competition last season, beating National League South sides Hungerford and Eastbourne 1-0 and 4-0 to earn a second-round clash at National League outfit Barnet before a gallant 2-1 loss.

A sum of £2,450 is on offer to the winners, while £800 will go to the losers.

First qualifying round ties will be played on Saturday, October 26.
