FA Trophy Draw

The draw for the First Round Proper has taken place with three local teams still in the competition and dreaming of that visit to Wembley.


The Mariners will host Dunston after they defeated South Shields on penalties at the Marine Travel Arena.

Marine, who have won both Trophy rounds on spot-kicks, will play Dunston for the second time this season, after Marine won 2-1 at Dunston in the FA Cup.


It was also a victory on penalties for Bootle, as they narrowly beat Widnes FC in the Third Round Qualifying of the competition.

They now have a tough tie against higher league opposition Staylbridge Celtic at home.

Warrington Town

The Yellows have also been drawn a home tie against Chasetown, after a fantastic 2-0 away victory over Hebburn Town FC secured their place in the First Round Proper.

All local sides will play at home with the ties to be played on Saturday November 13.
