Thursday 1st November 2018 @ 11:51 by Mark Phillip

Stalybridge Celtic will host Buxton in the FA Trophy second qualifying round on Saturday, November 10.

Paul Phillips and Steve Halford’s side secured their place after beating King’s Lynn Town 2-1 in a replay on Tuesday.

The sides will meet twice in the space of seven days. Firstly, Celtic host Buxton in the Evo-Stik Premier Division this Saturday (3rd) before competing the FA Trophy the following weekend.

Phillips and Halford, who took control of Buxton towards the end of last season, had a brief but tumultuous spell in charge of Celtic during the 2016/17 season.

The pair were sacked and replaced by Steve Burr, athough he was unable to save the club from relegation that season.
