Crewe Alexandra have been drawn away to National League play-off winners Grimsby Town in Round 1 of this season’s Carabao Cup draw that has taken place this afternoon.

This is the second season in a row that this has happened following a trip to Hartlepool United in August last season (a game that was settled by a Callum Ainley goal despite Billy Sass-Davies’ early red card) and will see the sides meet for the third time in the competition with Crewe advancing in both previous seasons – back in 1990/91 the teams would draw 2-2 on aggregate with the Alex scoring 1 away goal compared to the Mariners’ 0 before goals from Nicky Maynard, Michael O’Connor and Ryan Lowe saw the Alex advance in the 06/07 season.

The tie will take place the week commencing August 8th.
