Harrogate Town have been handed a trip to fellow Skrill North side Colwyn Bay to kick-off their FA Cup bid.

Town will travel to Llanelian Road on September 28 in the competition’s second qualifying round.

It will begin Town’s bid to repeat last year’s heroics when they reached the second round proper before losing to Hastings after extra time.

Boss Simon Weaver told the club’s website: “It’s a tricky tie.

“We want another good cup run as we saw the interest shown last year when we did so well.

“The cup is always something special and we would like to be part of that again.”

Colwyn Bay have their own FA Cup expert at the helm, with 1996/97 winner Frank Sinclair in charge.

Town beat the Welsh side 2-1 away last term before Sinclair’s side reversed the scoreline in the return at the CNG Stadium in March.

Colwyn have struggled at home this season, failing to win any of their four fixtures.

But they have had better fortune on the road winning two as they lie three places below Town in 10th.
