Hartlepool United will travel to League Two outfit Chesterfield in the first round of the FA Cup.

Pools will face former manager Chris Turner who is now chief executive at Chesterfield.

United last faced The Spireites just last season, winning the league match at the Proact Stadium 3-2 thanks to goals from Paul Murray and James Poole (2).

The two clubs have not met in FA Cup action since the 1955/56 season when Pools picked up a 2-1 win at Chesterfield.

The first round ties will be played over the weekend of Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 November.
