EMIRATES FA CUP DRAW | Wrexham AFC drawn away to Blyth Spartans

Red Dragons take on Spartans for the first time since 1978

3 October 2022

Wrexham have been drawn away from home to Blyth Spartans in the Fourth Qualifying Round of the Emirates FA Cup.

The fixture at Crofts Park will kick off at 3pm on Saturday October 15 and ticket and travel information will be released in due course.

Spartans defeated Guiseley AFC and Chorley FC on their way to the Fourth Qualifying Round, a stage which is no stranger to them in this competition.

Last season Wrexham made it to the First Round proper, after beating 2019/2020 FA Cup giant killers Marine AFC, but the Red Dragons journey ended after defeat to Harrogate Town.

It was in 1978 when the two teams met in the Fifth Round of the competition, with a last gasp equaliser from Dixie McNeil taking the game to a replay.

The replay took place at St James' Park, and 42,267 fans saw another close encounter, but Arfon Griffiths’ side edged out Spartans to secure a spot in the Quarter Finals.
