Hartlepool’s opponents in the first round of the FA cup have been revealed.

This weekend the final qualifying round took place, and on Sunday afternoon the draw for the first round proper took place live on ITV.

Following this draw it was revealed that Hartlepool will be taking on Notts County for a place in round two.

Given the fact that Notts County (who have today parted company with Chris Kiwomya) are a league one side they would be viewed as the favourites in this game but as it’s at Victoria Road we’ve got the home advantage.

I think we’re more than capable of beating the Magpies; I’ll not be brash enough to say we will but wouldn’t be surprised if we did!

This tie will be played on the 9th or 10th November.
