Brighouse Town have been handed a dream draw against Conference North side Stockport County in the FA Cup Second Qualifying Round.

The tie will be played at Stockport’s Edgeley Park ground on Saturday, September 28.

The NCEL Division One side could be in for a financial boost as County regularly attract crowds of around 2,000.

Meanwhile, local rivals Guiseley and Bradford Park Avenue meet for the first time in the FA Cup in the other stand-out game.
