SALISBURY will visit rivals Poole Town in the FA Cup first qualifying round – which is set to take place five days after they meet at the BlackGold Stadium in a Bank Holiday Monday derby clash.

The two sides first renew their rivalry on Monday, August 29, in a Southern League Premier South fixture, before the Whites travel back down to Dorset for round two in the Cup on Saturday, September 3.

If the tie is forced to a replay, it could mean a third game between the same opponents in the span of eight days.

There is no love lost between Dolphins boss Tom Killick and his Whites counterpart Steve Claridge, with the pair embroiled in frequent spats over the years.

Both meetings in the league finished in draws last term, with their last meeting in the FA Cup coming back in 2017, when then National South Poole defeated seventh-tier Salisbury 2-0 at the Ray Mac in the second qualifying round.

Laverstock & Ford’s run in the competition continues, with Liam McConnell’s men drawn away to either Southern League outfit Cinderford, or Hellenic Premier side Chipping Sodbury.

The Bulldogs have already set a new club record just by reaching the first qualifying round, but Lavvy will be hoping to continue deeper into the competition.

Any replays will be staged the week commencing Monday, September 5, with winners pocketing £2,250, and losers receiving £750.
