Both teams are in the final qualifying round

Two north Kent clubs are just a game away from reaching the first round of the FA Cup this weekend.

A win for Dartford or Ebbsfleet United could put them up against league opposition when the draw for the first round proper is made on Monday.

The prospect of a mouth-watering away tie could bring in major funds for the clubs, as teams split ticket receipts 50:50 for cup matches.

But before they can dream of facing teams from League One and League Two, both clubs have a qualifier to play.

Ebbsfleet will be getting their cup campaign underway on Saturday, while Dartford will be playing in their third qualifier of the season.

The games are as follows:

Burgess Hill Town v Dartford


East Thurrock v Ebbsfleet United

Both games kick off at 3pm on Satuday, October 14.
