The draw for the third qualifying round of the Emirates FA Cup has been made

The Steelmen’s reward for their excellent 4-1 victory at Alvechurch at the weekend is a clash in the north-west against a Stockport side who currently sit in mid-table in the Vanarama National League North and who are currently attracting attendances of around 3,000 at Edgeley Park.

Kettering Town, meanwhile, were handed a home tie and they will take on Hednesford Town at Latimer Park.

The Pitmen currently sit in 10th place in the Evo-Stik League Premier Division - the equivalent level to the Poppies.
