Justin Edinburgh’s men will entertain Beaconsfield Town in the first round while Peter Taylor’s Daggers visit Ebbsfleet United

The draw for the first round of the FA Trophy took place this afternoon and Leyton Orient and Dagenham & Redbridge discovered their opponents live on talkSPORT 2.

In the end it was a kind draw for Justin Edinburgh’s O’s, who are top of the National League table after 21 games.

Orient will play host to Buckinghamshire-based Beaconsfield Town with the Rams plying their trade in the Southern League Premier Division South.

Town defeated Leiston 3-1 on Saturday to reach the first round and give themselves a chance of a memorable first round tie.

The winner of the clash in E10 will pocket £6,000 and O’s will fancy their chances of making it through.

Peter Taylor’s Dagenham have a much trickier tie with the Victoria Road club set to visit league rivals Ebbsfleet United on December 15.

The game will see Daggers go up against their former manager Garry Hill, who took over at the Kent outfit earlier this month.
