Notts County will host Everton in the group of stage of this season's Checkatrade Trophy.
The Magpies were this afternoon drawn against the category one academy side in group G, which also contains fellow League Two clubs Lincoln City and Mansfield Town.
Groups have been arranged to minimise overall travel for EFL clubs following feedback from last season's competition.
Notts' Checkatrade Trophy schedule will be as follows (fixture dates and ticket details to be confirmed in due course):
Week commencing 28 August: Everton (H)
Week commencing 2 October: Mansfield Town (H)
Week commencing 6 November: Lincoln City (A)
