Wealdstone have been handed a trip to Colney Heath or Burgess Hill Town in the third qualifying round of the FA Cup.

Stones booked their place with a comfortable 4-0 win over Faversham Town at Grosvenor Vale on Saturday, after a first-half double from Danny Green.

Matty Whichelow and Dan Fitchett doubled their lead after the restart to earn £4,500 in prize money.

And another £7,000 will be up for grabs for winners in the next round on September 30, but National League South Stones must wait until Tuesday night to find out who they will face.

Bostik Premier Division side Burgess Hill looked to be well on course to victory on Saturday as they moved three goals ahead in Hertfordshire.

But Colney Heath produced a stunning fightback to earn a 3-3 draw and set up a midweek replay in Sussex.

Stones are due to return to league action with a trip to Bath this weekend, as they seek a fourth straight win.
