The draw for the third round of the FA Trophy was made on Monday afternoon

Wealdstone will host either Ebbsfleet United or Warrington Town in the third round of the FA Trophy.

The draw for the next stage of the competition was made live on talkSPORT2 on Monday afternoon.

Stones of the National League South progressed to the third round after beating Evo-Stik South Premier outfit Hereford 1-0 at home on Saturday.

Ricky Wellard’s 26th-minute header at Grosvenor Vale proved enough for Bobby Wilkinson’s men against the Bulls.

Wealdstone will now watch the replay between Ebbsfleet and Warrington on Tuesday with interest after Saturday’s initial tie ended in a 1-1 draw.

Stones have been drawn at home for the fourth round in succession in this year’s competition.

Ties in the third round are scheduled to take place over the weekend of February 3, with winners taking home £8,000 in prize money.

Wilkinson’s men have already won £18,000 in prize money for their exploits in the FA Trophy this season.
