Barrow Raiders will begin the 2020 season at home to London Skolars after they were drawn against their fellow Betfred League One side London Skolars in the third round of the Coral Challenge Cup.

The Skolars will travel to Craven Park on the weekend of February 8/9 in a round where the 11 teams from the third tier join the 11 remaining amateur sides in the competition.

Being given a home draw will mean some much-needed matchday revenue for the club, who faced the nightmare scenario of having just one game on their own turf in the first eight weeks of the season.

Barrow will have the incentive of a possible tie with a Championship club should they get through to round four.
