Southend United draw Stockport County in first round of FA Cup
SOUTHEND United will take on Stockport County in the first round of the FA Cup.
The tie will be played at Roots Hall on the weekend of November 3.
And Blues boss Paul Sturrock is pleased to have been drawn at home.
“A home tie is what you always ask for and it’s a game we’re looking forward to playing in,” said the Scotsman.
Stockport at home was also Sturrock’s first game in charge of Blues back in August 2010.
The Hatters have since been relegated from League Two and are currently 11th in the National Conference table.
