The first round draw proper of this season’s FA Cup took place earlier today and Accrington Stanley have been drawn at home against Tranmere Rovers.

The game will take place on either November 9th or November 10th but the exact date and time are still to be confirmed.

Ticket details will also be announced in due course.

James Beattie will no doubt be looking forward to seeing how we fare against League One opposition especially as Stanley are now on back to back victories and the results are slowly starting to reflect our performance levels.

We reached the second round of the competition last season, so we’d no doubt at least be hoping to match that. Of course a good run in the Cup, and maybe a plum tie along the way would also be a great financial boost for the club and maybe give Beattie an increased kitty for the January window.
