WISBECH Town have drawn unbeaten United Counties League leaders St Ives Town in the FA Vase.

The Fenmen, who currently top the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division, will travel to Westwood Road on November 17 for the second round clash.

The game is sure to draw a big crowd as the rivalry between the UCL and Eastern Counties league is played out by two of their heavyweights.

Steve Appleby’s side will need to be at their best to see of St Ives who have been in ruthless form this season, winning 10 of their 13 league games.

The Fenmen reached the fourth round of last season’s competition, before they were beaten by eventual winners Dunston UTS in a replay.
