ILFRACOMBE TOWN and Barnstaple Town will both be travelling to Somerset in the extra preliminary round of the FA Cup this coming season.

The draw has given Ilfracombe a game away to Chard Town and Barnstaple away to Wells City, both of which will be played on August 11.

If they win, both will have home draws in the following preliminary round on August 25 – Barnstaple v Bodmin Town or Brislington and Ilfracombe v Plymouth Parkway or Welton Rovers.

Further progress could see a local derby, with Bideford entering the competition at the first qualifying round stage and potentially hosting Barnstaple on September 8.

Both Ilfracombe and Barnstaple face tough starts to the new season with the Western League fixtures showing Combe away to Bitton and Town at home to Bridport in their opening games on August 4.
