Harrogate Town has drawn Portsmouth in the headline tie from the First Round Proper draw for the 2019-20 FA Cup. 

Harrogate knocked out National League leaders, Halifax Town to reach this stage and will welcome Portsmouth to Wetherby Road as they look to produce one of the First Round’s giant killings. 

Potters Bar Town of the Isthmian League will take on Fleetwood Town of League One if they can get past Barnet tomorrow night in a replay. 

Dulwich Hamlet and Chippenham Town face League Two opposition in Carlisle and Northampton, whilst Dover Athletic will face Southend. 

Haringey Borough meanwhile will face Yeovil next Tuesday in a replay of Saturday’s abandoned fixture, with the winners hosting Hartlepool United. 

Ipswich will have a chance to extract revenge on Lincoln City as they meet in the FA Cup for the first time, since Lincoln famously dumped the then Championship’s Tractor Boys out in a Third Round replay in January 2017

Chichester City meanwhile receive a bye to the Second Round by virtue of being the last team in the draw, after Bury withdrew from the competition last month following their eviction from the EFL. 

Ties to be played the weekend commencing 8th November 2019.
