Ashington, a former coal mining town with a population of 27,000, is 15 miles north of Newcastle. The football team are currently tenth in their division, 27 points behind leaders Darlington.
On Saturday they beat Rushden and Diamonds 2-1 with a winner in the fourth minute of injury time from Andrew Johnson.
Bodmin booked their place in the last 32 of the national competition, and pocketed £1,500 in prize money, by beating Wessex League leaders Downton 2-0 at Priory Park.
The rules of the Vase mean Bodmin, as the home team, will have to pay for Ashington's overnight stay. But should the Carlsberg South West Peninsula League champions win the tie, they would collect another £2,000 prize money.
Bitton, conquerors of St Blazey at Blaise Park on Saturday, are at home to Parkgate (Rotherham) or Shildon (County Durham), whose tie was postponed on Saturday.
