In the FA Vase, Town have been drawn at home to South West Peninsula League outfit Mousehole who are making their debut in the competition. The tie will be played at Southern Road on Saturday, September 19 (3pm). If succesful against the Cornish outfit, then Town would travel to Sherborne on Saturday October 10 in the next round.
