Leyton Orient have been handed an away trip to Haringey Borough in their first-ever FA Trophy tie in the club’s history.

The O’s will have to make the trip to Coles Park Stadium to face the Bostik North high-flyers in the first round of the cup competition.

The east London outfit have struggled on 3G pitches so far this campaign with a 2-0 defeat to Sutton United and a heavy 6-1 defeat to Bromley.

They’ll be hoping that pattern doesn’t continue against Tom Loizou’s men.

Local rivals Dagenham & Redbridge have been drawn away to former FA Cup heroes and EvoStik South Premier Division outfit Hereford.

The first round ties are due to be played on the weekend of December, 16, with the winners earning £6,000 in prize money.

Last year Daggers were knocked out of the tournament following a 2-1 loss at home to Bostik Premier Division outfit Worthing.
