Lichfield’s reward for progressing through two preliminary rounds in the FA Vase is a home tie against Dudley Town.

Dudley play at the same level as Lichfield – Step 6 – in the West Midlands (Regional) Premier League, although the league is due to be reclassified by the FA at the end of this season.

City progressed to this stage by defeating Birmingham-based Romulus 5-2 at home before besting Wolverhampton Casuals 4-2, also at Brownsfield Park.

Dudley have defeated Stapenhill and Smethwick Rangers to reach this stage of the Football Association’s prestigious competition for lower non-league sides.

The match is due to be played on Saturday 12 October, subject to confirmation.
