FA Cup: Stevenage to take on Hartlepool

Arlesey also drawn away long distance in FA Cup first round proper

Stevenage and Arlesey Town both face long journeys in the first round of the FA Cup after the draw was made yesterday (Sunday).

Boro will make the long trip up to Hartlepool United, a team they drew 2-2 with at the Lamex Stadium in August, while Arlesey face another higher league outfit in the form of Blue Square South side Salisbury City after knocking Blue Square Premier side Forest Green Rovers out of the cup on Saturday.

The ties will be played on the weekend of November 12.
