Tadcaster Albion’s FA Cup quest under new manager Billy Miller will begin with an away date in Newcastle.

The Brewers have been paired alongside Hebburn Town in the competition’s extra preliminary round, with the match taking place on August 15.

The pair last met in September 2008, when Brad Dowling scored a 93rd minute winner for Taddy to put them into the FA Vase third qualifying round with a 2-1 win.

Hebburn finished fifth in the Ebac Northern League Division Two last year, but finished the season without a win in six matches.

They will face Taddy without stalwart defender Ally Downey after the defender was told to miss the first half of the season on medical advice.

The winner of the tie will face either North West Counties sides Barnoldswick Town or Colne.

Hebburn will have to get used to playing against North Yorkshire opposition after also being put against Knaresborough Town in the FA Vase first qualifying round.

Brian Davey’s Manse Lane outfit will travel up the A1 to face Hebburn on September on September 5.

The winner will face either Ryton and Crawcrook Albion or Northern Counties side Yorkshire Amateur in the second qualifying round.
