NEWPORT County AFC have been drawn away to League Two rivals Grimsby Town in the FA Cup first round.

The ties will be played over the weekend of November 8 to November 10.

The draw means County will be traveling to Blundell Park on successive weekends next month as they also play the Mariners in the league on November 16.

In between, Michael Flynn's men face a trip to Cheltenham Town in the Trophy.

The Exiles made it to round five of the FA Cup last season, beating Metropolitan Police FC, Wrexham, Leicester City and Middlesbrough before losing to Premier League champions Manchester City at Rodney Parade. 

Non-league Chichester were the last team in the pot and they earn a bye to the second round following the expulsion of Bury from League One in August.
