Pools Drawn Away In FA Trophy

Buildbase FA Trophy, Hartlepool United

Pools have been handed a trip to Harrogate Town in the First Round of the FA Trophy.

The draw was made live on talkSPORT2 on Monday afternoon and Pools were paired with the North Yorkshire outfit in a tie to be played at The CNG Stadium.

It means the two clubs will now face each other at least three times in just 19 days, given we’re already due to meet on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

New boss Dave Challinor will be hoping he can lead Pools on a good run in the competition after winning the FA Trophy with AFC Fylde last season.

First Round ties are due to be played on Saturday 14th December.
