The Seasiders face a long trip to League Two promotion chasers Exeter City.

It will be the first game between the two sides since Pool's Wembley play-off triumph last year.

Fleetwood are also on the road as they travel to Alfreton Town, who currently sit 14th in the National League North.

Winners of first round ties, which will take place on the weekend of November 9, will claim £36,000.

The first round is the stage where League One and Two clubs first enter the competition.
