St Ives Town could face a former Football League club – if they make it into the third qualifying round of the FA Cup.
Ricky Marheineke’s side will travel to York City on October 6 providing they overcome Grantham Town in a second qualifying round replay tomorrow night (Tuesday).
Saints and Grantham drew 1-1 at Westwood Road last Saturday.
York were members of the Football League for 75 years until being relegated from the old Third Division in 2004. They also returned to League Two for four seasons earlier this decade.
City currently play one level higher than Saints and sit 14th in the National League North.
St Neots Town are already safely through to the third qualifying round following their thrilling 4-3 comeback success against Romulus last Saturday, but they will also have an eye on a replay tomorrow night.
Matt Clements’ men have been handed a home tie against either Coalville or Buxton, who battled out a goalless draw in their first meeting at the weekend.
