Salford City have been drawn against League One side Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup First Round.

The Ammies are likely to be playing the Shrews on Saturday 10th November (KO: 3pm) but this is still to be confirmed.

It will be a tough game for Salford with the Shropshire side getting to the League One Play-off Final only the summer just gone.

Salford Now spoke to Salford City fan Simon Peers: “A couple of years, you’d have got a League One team and you would’ve just been looking forward to the day out but now it’s a day out and we’ve genuinely got a chance.”

He continued: “The Notts County/Hartlepool era was a defining point in the clubs history, it made everyone aware of who we are, what we’re about and what the owners are doing.

“With the money from our owners we are the biggest scalp in the national league, we’re a scalp for the league two clubs, and some of the players we have playing for us are league one players.”
