FC Halifax Town will visit 1st Cloud Arena in the final qualifying round of the Emirates FA Cup.

Tuesday’s dramatic win on penalties at Southport earned South Shields a place at this stage of the competition for the first time since 2017, and now they will look to go one better.

As they did on that occasion, a tough National League opposition stands in their way in what is sure to be a hard-fought clash.

Halifax were fifth in the National League last season before the coronavirus pandemic forced the campaign to an early close, and lost to Boreham Wood in the play-offs.

They are managed by former Oldham Athletic boss Pete Wild and have started this season with a win, two draws and a defeat in the league.

Ticket and streaming details for this match will be announced over the weekend.
