Bridlington Town will travel to holders Spennymoor Town in the third round of the FA Vase.

Monday’s draw threw up the toughest outcome for Town, as they must travel to the North East to face opponents who knocked them out of last season’s competition.

Spennymoor won 5-1 at Queensgate last October and currently lie third in the Northern League.

The Seasiders booked their place in round three after a battle at fellow NCEL outfit Athersley Recreation. The tie was goalless after 90 nervous minutes but Joel Sutton converted a penalty in the first period of extra time.
