on December 08, 2013

The FA Cup third round draw took place at 4pm this afternoon,

We were number 34 in the draw and we have been drawn to play:


Macclesfield Town V The Owls

The Owls travel to Moss Rose to visit Conference side Macclesfield Town. This will be our first ever visit to Moss Rose

We have only played The Silkmen once before in November 1975 when we played them at Hillsborough is the 1st round of the FA cup and we emerged winners with a 3-1 victory. 

With Macclesfield being one of only three non-league sides still in the cup there is a very good chance this may be picked for live TV,  and with the current capacity of Moss Rose being only 6,335. Away fans are normally located in the open John Askey Terrace, where up to 1,500 fans can be accommodated. Additionally, 403 seats are usually made available in the Henshaw's Stand, which sits at one side of the pitch.

The full draw is shown below (Ties to be played on the weekend of 4 and 5 January 2014)
