FA Cup draw still a mystery for Torquay United
TORQUAY United do not yet know their first-round opponents in the FA Cup.
The Gulls were drawn at home to either Hyde, bottom of Blue Square Bet Premier, or West Yorkshire's Harrogate Town, a mid-table Blue Square Bet North side when the draw was made yesterday.
Hyde and Harrogate drew 1-1 in Cheshire on Saturday to set up a replay tomorrow at Harrogate's Wetherby Road ground, where Torquay were 6-5 winners in a first-round replay back in 2005.
Plymouth Argyle were paired with the only Westcountry non-League club left in the FA Cup.
The Pilgrims will make the short trip to the Avenue Stadium to face Dorchester Town on the weekend of November 3-4. The Dorset side, fourth in Blue Square Bet South, earned the tie by beating Bury Town in the fourth qualifying round on Saturday.
Nick Crittenden, an Argyle loan signing when he was a Chelsea player 14 years ago, and former Exeter City striker Ben Watson were two of the Magpies' three scorers in a 3-1 home win over the Suffolk side, who had two men sent off in the second half.
Exeter's first-round fate is an away tie against npower League One's bottom club, Bury. The trip to Gigg Lane will be a familiar one for the Grecians, who lost there at the same stage of the competition in 2007 and 2010.
The Shakers were 1-0 winners on the first occasion and then prevailed 2-0 three years later.
Yeovil Town, who beat Bury 2-1 on Saturday, were sent to another League One side in the Cup. They will have to tackle Preston North End at Deepdale, where they lost 3-2 when points were at stake in the League last month.
