Brislington lie in wait for Truro City in FA Cup
Truro City will travel to play Bristol-based side Brislington in the second qualifying round of the FA Cup on Saturday week, September 28.
In the draw made at Wembley yesterday, City were handed a tie against the Western League Premier Division side, who beat St Blazey 4-0 in an earlier round.
Last Saturday, Truro, the only Cornish team still left in the competition, won their first qualifying round tie at home to Street, another Western Premier side, 1-0, thanks to a last-gasp thunderbolt from substitute Liam Eddy, while Brislington won 2-1 at Wells City, who had beaten Bodmin Town 3-2 in a previous round.
City have never reached the third qualifying round, but now have a good chance to end that miserable record, and a win would also give them another £4,500 in prize money to add to the £3,000 they won by virtue of beating Street.

Bideford, Truro's Southern League Premier Division rivals, have been draw away to Yate Town.
Yate play a level below Bideford in the Division One South and West of the Southern League. They beat Chippenham Town 3-2 in first round qualifying last Saturday.
The Gloucestershire club have won two, drawn two and lost two games in their league forays this season.
Bideford, unbeaten in the Premier Division, won 3-0 against Larkhall Athletic in the Cup last Saturday.
Clevedon Town, who saw off South West Peninsula League side Plymouth Parkway with a 1-0 win at Hand Stadium last Saturday, were given another home tie, against Sholing.
FA Cup second qualifying round draw (selected ties): Dorchester Town v Shortwood Utd, Hamworthy Utd v Poole Town, Cirencester Town v Portchester, Brislington v Truro City, Corsham Town or Bristol Manor Farm v Bridgwater Town, Gloucester City v Havant & Waterlooville, Eastleigh v Mangotsfield Utd, Basingstoke Town v Weston-super-Mare, Yate Town v Bideford, Weymouth v Frome Town or Bognor Regis Town, Clevedon Town v Sholing, Bath City v Gosport Borough, Bashley v Hungerford Town.

Falmouth Town have parted company with joint-managers Robbie Stephens and Gary Pascoe after a poor start to the season which has seen the Bickland Park side take just three points from their opening ten South West Peninsula League Premier Division games. It is understood the club's directors met on Saturday, after Falmouth went down 4-0 at fellow strugglers Cullompton Rovers, and the decision was taken to dispense with the pair's services.
