FA Cup Round One

The draw has been made for the first round proper of the FA Cup.

Sadly, due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, fans will not be able to attend any of those games.

FA Cup Round One Draw: Doncaster Rovers Face Tricky Tie

Dream Tie for FC United of Manchester

FC United of Manchester have been dealt with a dream first round tie, as the Northern Premier League Premier Division side will host Doncaster Rovers.

The Red Rebels earned their place in the hat after defeating Guiseley 2-1 at Broadhurst Park. Despite their tough draw, they will be hoping to equal their best FA Cup finish; they reached the second round of competition in 2010/11.

Doncaster will be hoping to avoid an upset when they make the trip to Manchester. Darren Moore’s side currently sit just outside of the League One play-offs, having won 13 points from their opening seven games.

Skelmersdale United Face Trip to Harrogate Town

Skelmersdale United have been rewarded for their efforts so far in the competition with a trip to Harrogate Town.

The lowest-ranked side in the competition have negotiated six rounds of the cup already, having begun their campaign in the Extra Preliminary round against Penistone Church. They booked their place in round one of the FA Cup having defeated Stafford Rangers 4-1.

As a result of their triumph in Staffordshire, Skelmersdale became the first team from the North West Counties League to reach the first round since 1986.

However, they face one of the most in-form teams in League Two currently in Harrogate Town. Simon Weaver’s side currently sit sixth in fourth tier following a superb start to the season.
