FA Cup second qualifying round draw: Brighouse Town to visit former Football League side Stockport County

Brighouse Town have been given a dream draw in the FA Cup second qualifying round as the Toolstation NCEL Division One side will visit former Football League giants Stockport County.
Regardless of the result, Brighouse could receive a massive windfall as crowds at Edgeley Park have been in the high two thousands.
Local rivals Guiseley and Bradford Park Avenue meet for the first time in the FA Cup in the other stand-out game. The two sides are taking each other tomorrow night in the Conference North.
They both got to the First Round last season, but only one will have a chance of reaching the prestigious in 2013.
Scarborough Athletic have a very winnable draw in a home draw against Penrith. Frickley Athletic will host Marske United, who beat Albion Sports 3-0 on Saturday.
If Ossett Town manage to beat Bamber Bridge in the First Qualifying Round replay, they will welcome Warrington Town or New Mills to Ingfield.
Harrogate Town will visit Colwyn Bay.
All ties will be played on the weekend of Saturday 28th September.
In other news, basement Toolstation NCEL Premier Division side Nostell Miners Welfare have appointed Ossett Albion reserve team boss Darren Holmes as their new manager.
Holmes replaces caretaker boss Mark Greaves, who lost all his five games and leaves with the club four points adrift at the bottom.
Former Ossett, Liversedge and Mossley striker Gareth Hamlet is Holmes’ assistant.
The pair won the Lancashire League title with Albion last season and they take charge for the first time tomorrow night when Glasshoughton Welfare visit.
