The draw for the Emirates FA Cup First Round Proper has been made and the winner of the Gateshead/Altrincham tie tomorrow night will face Stevenage at home.
Alty have never played Stevenage in the Emirates FA Cup (or FA Trophy) match before, but as Stevenage Borough they were regular visitors to Moss Lane in the Football Conference as the Vanarama National League was then known.
They have played 10 times at The J. Davidson Stadium, most recently in April 2010. Alty’s last home win against them was our opening game in the 2006-7 season. A crowd of 1035 saw The Robins beat the title favourites 2-1, with Colin Little and Steve Aspinall on the mark.
The ties are to be played between Friday 4 November 2022 and Monday 7 November 2022.
