The draw for the Third Round of the Buildbase FA Trophy Third Round was made on Monday morning at Wembley Stadium.

England C manager Paul Fairclough was joined by FA Trophy Committee Chairman Phil Smith to make the draw, which was broadcast live via the FA’s Periscope account.

In arguably the tie of the round there is a clash of two National League sides as Macclesfield Town entertain Forest Green Rovers at Moss Rose.

In-form Nuneaton Town will host National League strugglers York City, whilst FA Cup heroes Lincoln City will travel to Welling United.

Much-fancied Barrow will entertain Kidderminster Harriers, whilst Dulwich Hamlet’s reward for their impressive win at Whitehawk is a trip to Braintree Town.

National League South side Chelmsford City face an away tie at Tranmere Rovers.

Two ties are yet to be decided.

The winners of the Second Round replay between Stockport County and Brackley Town face an away tie at Wealdstone, whilst Worthing host the winners of the all-National League replay between Sutton United and Boreham Wood.

The draw in full was:

Welling United v Lincoln City
Braintree Town v Dulwich Hamlet
Barrow v Kidderminster Harriers
Tranmere Rovers v Chelmsford City
Macclesfield Town v Forest Green Rovers
Wealdstone v Stockport County or Brackley Town
Nuneaton Town v York City
Worthing or Sutton United v Boreham Wood

Winners of the ties will receive £7,000 from the FA’s prize fund and the fixtures will be played on Saturday 4th February.
