Bridlington Town will face last season’s FA Vase winners North Shields in the Extra Preliminary Round of the FA Cup.

Friday’s draw gave The Seasiders a home tie, but it couldn’t have been much tougher against a side who finished fourth in the Northern league before their Wembley success over Glossop North End.

The winners of that tie, on Saturday, August 15, will be at home to Kendal Town in the Preliminary Round two weeks later.

Town will be on the road when they begin their FA Vase campaign on September 5.

They will make the long trip to Penrith, again facing Northern League opposition, but the Cumbrian side finished 15th in last season’s table.

If they can win through, Bridlington will then travel to Sunderland RCA in the second qualifying round.
