North Wilts League Cup second round draws announced

Tuesday 26 September 2017 - by Stuart Smedley (Updated on 26 September 2017 at 20:55)

Draws for the second round of the North Wilts League Cup have been announced, and three of the five Royal Wootton Bassett Town sides remaining in the competitions have been handed home ties.

Both Under 15s sides have been drawn away from home.

And the Blue team will need to defeat Division One rivals FC Calne if they are to maintain hopes of repeating their cup triumph last year. The two sides have already met in the league, with Bassett recording a 5-0 victory. However, FC Calne helped play a part in denying Bassett the double last season, defeating them 2-1 in a crucial encounter late in the campaign.

Meanwhile, the Yellows, who have made an outstanding start in Division Three, face a trip to either Cirencester Town Centurions or Malmesbury Youth Eagles, both of who play a division higher.

The Under 18 Blues will host Division One rivals Fairford and Lechlade, while the Yellows welcome AFC Newbury Colts.

The Under 12 Blues are the other side handed home advantage, and they will face fellow Division One outfit AFC Newbury Red.

All games are scheduled to take place on Sunday 5th November.

The full draw for Bassett's teams is as follows:

Under 18 Blue - v Fairford and Lechlade (Home)
Under 18 Yellow - v AFC Newbury Colts (Home)

Under 15 Blue - v FC Calne (Away)
Under 15 Yellow - v Cirencester Town Centurions or Malmesbury Youth Eagles (Away)

Under 12 Blue - v AFC Newbury Red (Home)
