TAUNTON Town's reward for their 5-3 victory over arch-rivals Tiverton Town is an FA Cup third round qualifying tie with another familiar opponent.

The Peacocks have been drawn to host fellow Southern League Premier South side Truro City next Tuesday, October 13 (7.45pm), at the Cygnet Health Care Stadium.

The winner of that tie will progress to fourth round qualifying - one round away from the first round proper of the competition, which Taunton last reached in 2016.

The two teams last played each other only a week ago, with the league meeting at Truro finishing 1-1.

Next week's FA Cup tie will see several ex-Taunton players - Ryan Brett, Andrew Neal, Ed Palmer and Shane White - return to their old stomping ground.


WELLINGTON AFC picked up their first win in almost a year on Saturday, as Hallen were beaten 2-1 in the Toolstation Western League Premier Division.

It was a first win for Tim Legg as Tangerines manager, having replaced Clive Jones last October and undergone an overhaul of the playing squad.

The visitors went ahead after just 32 seconds, as Josh Champion's cross was converted by George Sinnott.

Sacha Tong equalised with 20 minutes left to play, but Miles Quick dribbled through to win the game for Wellington with seven minutes remaining.

Their win was marred by a serious injury sustained by young midfielder Harry Walford, however, as he suffered a broken leg in a second-half challenge which saw Hallen's Luke Hall-Cousins sent off.

Wellington make the short trip up the M5 to play Bridgwater Town tomorrow (Tuesday, 7.45pm).
