Checkatrade Trophy Second Round draw details confirmed

8 November 2017

The draw for Round Two of the Checkatrade Trophy will take place at Wembley Stadium ahead of the England vs Germany international friendly on Friday 10 November.

England under 17 World Cup winning manager Steve Cooper and Southampton legend Matthew Le Tissier will be selecting the ties, with the BBC's Mark Clemmit overseeing proceedings from the Wembley Suite.

Build up to the draw will commence from 6:30pm with the draw being announced shortly afterwards via @CheckatradeTrpy on Twitter.

Several of Cooper's successful U17 World Champions have played in the Checkatrade Trophy this season including England captain and Manchester City defender Joel Latibeaudiere and Fulham's Steven Sessegnon.

Thirty-two Clubs are involved in Round Two of the competition with the draw split into Northern and Southern sections. Ties will be determined by a draw where the winner of each group will be drawn at home and will play a runner up of a group from the same region, but not from the same group they competed in from Round One.

To ensure these conditions are met the Northern and Southern draws will be split into two separate draws – Draw A and Draw B.

Therefore, Stags will be handed an away tie against one of the following clubs: 

Fleetwood Town 
Blackpool
Rochdale 
Port Vale 

Draw numbers will be made available on Thursday 9 November following the conclusion of tonight's matches.

In the event that West Ham United are required to play at home, permission has been granted to stage the fixture at their opponent's venue.
