Yeovil Town have been given a Somerset derby home draw against Taunton Town in the Fourth Qualifying Round of the FA Cup.
The tie will be played at Huish Park on Saturday 15th October with £9,375 of prize money for the winners and £3,125 for the losers.
The local rivals met in the competition’s Second Qualifying Round back in 1996 with the first game at Huish Park finishing goalless before Graham Roberts’ Glovers won 5-3 in a replay at Wordsworth Drive, with violence flaring at the final whistle and Roberts ending up in front of local magistrates a few weeks later.
Last season saw the Glovers draw local rivals W*ymouth in last year’s competition with a 1-1 draw in Somerset in the first game followed by a penalty shoot-out win on an unforgettable night on the other side of the border.
