After winning the prestigous trophy at Wembley in May’s memorable 3-2 victory over Macclefield Town, York will now be aiming to keep hold of their crown.

Leicestershire part-timers Coalville Town are currently 15th in the Evostik Northern Premier League, which is the division below York City in the National League North.

It will be the first ever meeting in professional competition between the two sides.

City have won the FA Trophy twice, first lifting it during that unforgettable double Wembley week in 2012 when they also won the play-off final.

And then again this May. Here is a reminder of that thrilling encounter as City prepare to set off along the road to Wembley again.
