Southport, Runcorn Linnets and Prescot Cables have discovered their fate in the FA Trophy third qualifying round.

Southport will travel to Lancashire-based side Colne and, following their 1-1 draw on Saturday, the winner of the replay between Linnets and Cables will face FC United of Manchester at home.

Prescot took the lead in that game through a Lloyd Dean finish, but the Runcorn side saved their place in the competition with a 94th minute equaliser from Zac Aley.

Their replay will take place on the 12th November at Prescot Cables’ Valerie Park.

Northern Premier League Division One North West side Colne dispatched Buxton 3-1 in the FA Trophy second qualifying round.

The Sandgrounders will not have to rearrange any league fixtures due to the competition.

The Merseyside club suffered a defeat to Spennymoor in their last game.

Southport are in quite an inconsistent patch winning three of their last five matches and losing two.

Linnets are also in bad form as of late, only winning two of their last five and suffering a devastating 6-1 defeat to Marske United.

Prescot are in the worst form of them all, managing just one victory in their last five.

The round of matches will take place on the 23rd November.
