Bath city logoBath City’s reward for a 3-1 FA Trophy victory at Conference South rivals Wealdstone is a home third round tie against Football Conference Altrincham on Saturday January 24 at Twerton Park.

Chris Hargreaves’ Torquay United have been drawn away to Conference South side Hemel Hempstead Town following the Gulls’ 4-0 home win over Bromley FC.

Hargreaves is hoping Torquay’s emphatic Trophy victory will act as catalyst for league success when 10th placed United visit 15th placed Altrincham on Saturday.

Romans fans are reminded that tomorrow night’s Conference South fixture at home to Farnborough FC has been postponed as Boro host Maidenhead United in a second round Trophy replay.

12th placed Bath’s next game is at home to basement side Staines in the league on Saturday.

Andy Watkins, Ashley Kington and Frankie Artus scored for Lee Howells' side as they won at Wealdstone.

 Promotion-chasing Bristol Rovers – second in the Football Conference – have swooped to sign experienced striker Jermaine Easter on an 18 month contract.

Cardiff-born Easter, 32, joins Rovers ahead of Saturday’s trip to seventh placed Woking and after his contract with Millwall was cancelled.

Former Plymouth Argyle forward Easter won 12 international caps for Wales and played for Crystal Palace and MK Dons before joining Millwall in 2013.

 Plymouth-born former Torquay United striker Danny Sullivan, 20, training with Southern League Premier Division side Truro City with view to teaming up with White Tigers.

• Dorchester Town posted seven days notice of approach for Tiverton Town homegrown striker Owen Howe.

 Bristol-born midfielder Ryan Harley has been allowed to leave Swindon Town and rejoin former club Exeter City where he has been on loan since November.

Like Alex Nicholls and David Noble, 27-year-old playmaker Harley becomes the third loan signing to be converted into a permanent City signing in the current transfer window. Harley began his career at Bristol City.

Bristol City Under 21s beat Brentford U21 5-2 at Failand.
