Town Drawn at Home in FA Cup

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 26/10/2003

GRIMSBY Town have drawn West Londoners Queens Park Rangers at home in the First Round of the FA Cup. The two clubs met only recently at Blundell Park in the League, and Rangers were fortunate to win 1-0 with an injury time goal.

Town have exited the competition at the first time of asking for three consecutive years, losing to Wycombe, York and Burnley (all after replays), so will feel they are "due" to progress further into the FA Cup this season.

The FA Cup is the only competition the Mariners are still involved with, having already been knocked out of the Carling Cup and LDV Trophy, again after just one game in each tournament.

The full draw is as follows:

Lincoln v Brighton
Peterborough v Hereford
Oldham v Carlisle
Cheltenham v Hull City
Yeovil v Wrexham
Macclesfield v Boston United
Grays or Margate v Aldershot
Scarborough v Doncaster Rovers
Barnet v Stalybridge Celtic
Blackpool v Boreham Wood
Wycombe v Swindon
Lancaster City v Cambridge United
East Thurrock or Woking v Histon
Bournemouth v Bristol Rovers
Eastbourne or Stevenage v Stockport County
Grantham v Leyton Orient
Thurrock v Luton
Northampton v Plymouth
Tranmere v Chesterfield
Hornchurch v Darlington
Scunthorpe v Shrewsbury
Torquay v Burton
Accrington Stanley v Huddersfield
Grimsby Town v QPR
Notts County v Shildon
Brentford v Farsley Celtic or Gainsborough
Kidderminster v Northwich or Halifax
Southend v Mangotsfield or Canvey Island
York City v Barnsley
Port Vale v Ford United
Mansfield Town v Bishop Stortford
Sheffield Wednesday v Salisbury City
Farnborough v Weston Super Mare
Chester City v Exeter City or Gravesend
