HARTLEPOOL UNITED will face Harrogate three times in the space of 19 days after being paired up in the FA Trophy.

Pools go to North Yorkshire on Saturday, December 14 in the competition – and they then head back there on Boxing Day before taking them on again at Victoria Park on January 1.

Dave Challinor, the new Pools manager, won the competition at Wembley with AFC Fylde last season.

Darlington will go to Solihull Moors in the first round.
