DORCHESTER Town have been drawn away to AFC Totton in the FA Trophy third qualifying round.

Dorchester, currently without a manager, face the current Southern League Division One South leaders - one division beneath the Magpies.

The tie takes place on Saturday, October 30 with £2,450 up for grabs for the winners, and just £625 for the losers.

Dorchester have already suffered at the hands of a lower-league team this season, losing 4-1 to Lymington - who ply their trade in the same tier as Totton - in the League Cup.

Totton have scored 26 goals in nine games this season, losing just once and amassing 20 points.

Dorchester, meanwhile, have lost eight league games in 10 Southern League Premier South outings, taking two wins.

Last season, Dorchester made it through to the first round courtesy of a 2-1 win over Gosport Borough.

The fixture proved to be Leigh Robinson's final game in charge before he stepped down due to work commitments.

His successor, Robbie Herrera took the Magpies to Swindon Supermarine where a stoppage-time 3-2 defeat ended their run.

Dorchester have fond memories of the FA Trophy in recent seasons, notably in 2018/19 when Steve Thompson's side made it to the second round.

Impressive wins over higher-league Hungerford and Eastbourne gave the Magpies a trip to National League side Barnet where a narrow 2-1 loss cruelly robbed Dorchester of further glory.
