SALFORD, England (AP) - Salford City, the non-league club part-owned by five former Manchester United players, will be in the draw for the third round of the FA Cup after drawing 1-1 with fourth-tier Hartlepool on Friday.

Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes - two of the so-called “Class of 92” owning a stake in seventh-tier Salford - were at Moor Lane to see their team fall behind to an early penalty before equalizing in the 23rd minute through Stephen O’Halloran to force a replay.

It keeps open the prospect of Salford being drawn against United in Monday’s third round, when the country’s top teams enter the draw. That would leave Butt, Scholes and fellow co-owners Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville and Phil Neville with divided loyalties.
