Jersey Bulls – first-time entrants in the tournament’s 150th year – are set to host Southern Combination Premier side Horsham YMCA at Springfield on Saturday 7 August, after being handed a spot in the extra-preliminary round for the 2021/22 edition.

A total of six fixtures stand between Bulls and the first round proper, with the winner of their debut tie going on to face either Newhaven or Camberley Town in the preliminary round on 21 August.

While Bulls’ opening three league games will be played away from home, provisions are being made to ensure the FA Cup tie can take place in St Helier. Club officials are in discussions with Springfield and Government of Jersey staff to finalise their Covid risk assessments, while all of Horsham’s players and coaches will either be double vaccinated or have produced a negative PCR test before their arrival.

More in Thursday's JEP.
