Stones at home in the first round of the FA Cup

Maidstone United have been drawn at home to Torquay United in the first round of the Emirates FA Cup.

Victory over Kings Langley on Saturday saw the Stones through to this stage of the competition for the sixth consecutive season.

The Gulls beat fellow National League side Boreham Wood in an entertaining encounter at Plainmoor.

A swift double from Jake Andrews and Jamie Reid put last season’s National League South champions in charge at the interval, and despite Tyrone Marsh’s response via the penalty spot, Torquay regained the two-goal advantage through Ben Whitfield.

An unlucky own-goal from Robbie Cundy looked set to force a tense finale, but Gary Johnson’s side held on to secure the win.

Torquay have adapted well to life back in non-league’s top flight. After 17 games they are ninth, with 25 points on the board – two points off the last play-off spot.

The tie will take place on the weekend of 9/10 November.

Admission details for this tie will be confirmed soon.
