Pompey To Visit Harrogate Town In FA Cup

Non-league side to host Blues in first round

21 October 2019

Pompey have been drawn away to Harrogate Town in the first round of the Emirates FA Cup.

The tie will take place at Wetherby Road on the weekend of November 8-11. A confirmed date and ticket information is to be announced in due course.

It will be the first meeting between the sides, with the hosts currently sitting eighth in the National League.

But Craig MacGillivray will certainly be familar with the Yorkshire outfit, having made 90 Conference North appearances for them between 2012 and 2014.

They reached this round of the competition with a 2-1 win at Halifax in the fourth qualifying round on Saturday.

Pompey assistant manager Joe Gallen said: "We'll have a bit of homework to do and will try to find out as much as we can about them.

"The FA Cup is a brilliant competition and this is a tie that we'll certainly look forward to."

"It's a side that I've never come up against before, but they're doing well in the National League and it will no doubt be a tough game.

"The FA Cup is a brilliant competition and this is a tie that we'll certainly look forward to when it comes around."

One team have already booked their place in the second round, with Chichester City – the lowest ranked side remaining – receiving a bye due to Bury's EFL expulsion.
