MALDON & Tiptree's FA Cup heroes have been handed a home tie in the second round as a reward for their first-round triumph at Leyton Orient on Sunday.

Having already dispatched League Two opposition in winning at the O's, the Jammers will face another opponent from the same level as they were drawn at home against either Grimsby Town or Newport County.

The pair will have to settle who faces a trip to Maldon's Park Drive home in a replay after they drew 1-1 at Grimsby on Saturday, but whoever it is who wins through, they will face a buoyant Jammers side.

They earned their place in a first-ever second round draw thanks to goals from Danny Parish and Jorome Slew as Orient were beaten 2-1 and manager Wayne Brown was happy to get a home tie this time.

After the draw, which took place live on television at Chichester City's home, Brown told the BBC: "It gives us a chance.

"It's always a level playing field when you can get one of the minnows like us at home against a league club.

"So I'm sure the lads will be looking forward to it."

Maldon chairman Ed Garty was also pleased to see his team's name come out of the hat first to ensure a home tie.

He added: "We're definitely pleased; we do well against the League Two sides.

"That's a decent draw for us and it should be a good day."

Second round ties are due to be played over the weekend of Saturday, November 30, and Sunday, December 1.
