Croydon will face VCD Athletic in the preliminary round of the FA Cup after Saturday’s 2-1 win over AFC Uckfield Town.

Goals from Karl Doughlin and Jason Pinnock were enough to set up the clash with the Ryman Division North outfit on August 20.

Next up for the Trams is Saturday’s trip to Bearsted in the Premier Division of the Southern Counties East League (SCEL), followed by a home game against Beckenham Town on Wednesday.

AFC Croydon Athletic crashed out of the FA Cup, going down 5-2 at Colliers Wood United. They will be hoping for better this weekend when their SCEL campaign kicks off at Whitstable Town.
