Deeping Rangers are ready for a trip into the unknown.

The Clarets were handed exemption from the Buildbase FA Vase qualifying rounds.

We’ll have to play our best football to get through and prepare properly again. If we do that, we’ll have a good chance.
Michael Goode

They head to Chesterfield-based FC Bolsover in the first round proper on Saturday.

Boss Michael Goode said: “We only know a few things about them from what we have read since the draw.

“They were promoted last season and they are mid-table now but the manager left in the last couple of weeks.

“We’re going away from home miles away where you would expect to face a strong, robust outfit. So we’ll have to play our best football to get through and prepare properly again. If we do that, we’ll have a good chance.”

FC Bolsover are 10th in the Northern Counties East League Division One.

Deeping found top form last weekend to end Newport Pagnell Town’s unbeaten start in the ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League Premier Division.

They came from behind twice to level through Dan Schiavi and Jason Kilbride before skipper David Burton-Jones hit a late winner.

Charlie Coulson will be back in the squad after his one-match ban was served in the Lincolnshire FA Senior Trophy quarter-final away to Holbeach United on Wednesday night.
