Lowestoft Town and Dereham Town have both been handed home ties in the FA Vase third round draw.

Last season's finalists will welcome Middlesex side Harefield United to Crown Meadow after their weekend victory over Tiptree United. The Hares play their football in the Spartan South Midlands Football League Premier Division, a corresponding level to the Ridgeons League Premier Division.

Dereham Town have a similar challenge, their 1-0 win at Kirkley & Pakefield on Saturday earning them a home tie against Cherry Red Records Combined Counties League Premier side Molesey.
