FA Cup Round 1 Draw

Last updated : 26 October 2003 By @blades_mad1889

Whitby Town in action against Darlington in a pre-season friendly last season. Town could face Hartlepool if they beat Bromsgrove in a replay.
Sheffield United, of course will not enter the Football Association Cup until round Three in January 2004 but arch rivals Wednesday will have to start in Round One against non-league opposition Sailsbury City of the Dr Martins Premier League at Hillsborough.

Unibond Premier League side Whitby Town need to beat Bromsgrove Rovers at the Turnbull Ground to set up a tie with Division Two club Hartlepool United away, while the all Yorkshire Derby between Scarborough and Doncaster Rovers takes place at the McCain Stadium.

An all Second Division cup game takes place at Prenton Park between Tranmere Rovers and Chesterfield, the Spirites are currently bottom of the division and a win could give them a huge boost. Conference newcomers Accrington Stanley face West Yorkshire side Huddersfield Town, this should be a tough game as there is only a division difference between them both.

Gainsborough Trinity need to beat Farsley Celtic in order to travel down to London and face Brentford, while Chris Wilder's Halifax Town should be playing Kidderminster Harriers at the Aggborough Stadium but need to beat Northwich first.

Barnsley, who have just announced there new chairman as Peter Risdale face York City in an all Yorkshire Derby at Bootham Cresent, we expect to see the Oakwell club in Round 2 unless Mitch ward can out perform against his old club.

Bradford Park Avenue will be delighted with the draw, they face Bristol City at home, Danny Wilson's men drew 1-1 with Sheffield Wednesday yesterday at Ashton Gate so will prove to be a strong opposition for Paddy Kenny's former club.
