After Saturday’s historic win at Stafford Rangers secured our spot in the FA Cup First Round, tonight’s televised draw saw a huge draw as we will face EFL League Two side Harrogate Town who sit five divisions above our NWCFL level.
The tie is set to be played on Saturday 7th November at The Envirovent Stadium though may be moved if chosen for TV coverage and alike all ties in the first round will be BEHIND CLOSED DOORS.
It will be the first ever meeting between the two sides with United having faced Town’s counterparts Harrogate Railway several times over the years and of course, our first tie at this stage since the meeting with Tranmere Rovers back in the 1971-72 season. Details on any TV/stream coverage will posted when announced.
Ahead of the FA Cup game, we resume NWCFL action with two away trips this week starting with the visit to 1874 Northwich on Tuesday evening and tickets are available via 1874 at t.co/NsDYjG8rHt?amp=1
Pay on the gate will be available as it will be too on Saturday for the visit to Ashton Athletic.
