HOLDERS York City have been drawn at home to Leicestershire part-timers Coalville Town in the third qualifying round of the FA Trophy.

The tie will be played at Bootham Crescent on Saturday, November 25.

Coalville made the hat after winning 5-1 at Alvechurch over the weekend, having also previously travelled to Redditch and beaten their hosts 1-0.

The Owen Street outfit currently sit 15th in the Evo-Stik Northern League premier division, positioned between Barwell and Hednesford Town.

City chief Martin Gray was unavailable for comment on his team’s draw.

During the last four seasons, Gray has not progressed further than the current stage with previous club Darlington, having been knocked out by Marine, Sutton Coldfield, St Neots and Buxton.

Darlington, meanwhile, will host City’s neighbours Harrogate Town in one of the draw’s six all-National League North ties.

The others are Brackley v Salford, Boston v Kidderminster, Nuneaton v North Ferriby, Stockport v Southport and Leamington v Curzon Ashton.

City have lifted Trophy on each of the last two times they have entered the competition.

Last term, goals from Jon Parkin, Vadaine Oliver and Aidan Connolly secured a 3-2 victory over Macclesfield Town.

Back in 2012, meanwhile, Lanre Oyebanjo and Matty Blair efforts saw off the challenge of Newport County in a 2-0 triumph.

Winners at this stage of the competition will receive a cheque for £5,000 and earn a place in the first round proper, where National League clubs enter the tournament on Saturday, December 16.
