FA Cup draw kind to Stocksbridge

Have your say

The draw for the second qualifying round of the FA Cup has been kind to the region’s teams.

Should Stocksbridge Park Steels come through their replay against Armthorpe Welfare at Bracken Moor, then Steels will face a home clash against newly-promoted Blues Square North Colwyn Bay.

Steels drew 1-1 at Church Street on Saturday, taking a lead through forward Jack Muldoon which was cancelled out by Adam Lee’s effort. The teams meet again tonight.

Staveley, who face a replay against Pickering Town on Wednesday, have been paired against Blue Square North leaders Hyde.

Frickley Athletic also face Blue Square North opponents with Harrogate Town the visitors to Westfield Lane, with Matlock Town at home against Hinckley United.

Ties are scheduled for Saturday, October 1.
