Ramsgate on the road in early FA Vase Draws

The Rams make the long trek to Oxfordshire to play Ditcot Town in the Extra Preliminary Round of the FA Cup on 23 August.   A home tie against Eastbourne Town awaits the winner in the Preliminary Round seven days later.   But the Rams will be on the coach again in the First Qualifying Round to AFC Totton, Erith Town or AFC Newbury.

Ramsgate have been handed away ties in the FA Vase when they travel to Blackfield & Langley on 6 September and if successful travel to Sidley United two weeks later.

But the Rams were given one home tie when they meet Cobham at Southwood Stadium in the FA Youth Cup in the First Qualifying Round.  The match will be played before 6 September.  The Rams will travel to Winchester City or Burgess Hill Town in the next round before 20 September.   But a home tie against one of Banstead Athletic, Sittingbourne, Molesey or Epsom & Ewell awaits them in the final qualifying round.
