SALISBURY’S reward for their 4-3 FA Trophy victory over Hayes and Yeading, is a trip to National League South side Eastbourne Borough on December 14.

Darren Mullings, Bay Downing, Alexander Le Fleur and Warren Bentley were the men on target for the Whites last Saturday.

Salisbury manager Steve Claridge said: “We showed great character in the win over Hayes and Eastbourne are a decent side and better than their position in the table."

Before the Whites can focus on more trophy success, they return to league action with a trip to Walton Casuals on Saturday.

Striker Owen Howe has re-signed from Weston-super-Mare and goes into the squad for Saturday's and Claridge said: "We know all about Owen (Howe) and it is good to have him back. I think he will add some physicality for us. I watched Walton on Tuesday night and they battled away all game. They twice came back to earn a deserved 2-2 draw, so I am expected another tough game on Saturday.

"It is the start of a very important six weeks for the team.

On Tuesday night, Salisbury are at home to Melksham in a Wiltshire Premier Shield quarter-final tie.
